    Finished my latest project, the chartreuse panther. I believe it’s a ‘53. Thanks again to @ZE52414 for letting me hold onto it for a while. This is my second Schwinn refurbish, and these bikes are built pretty darn solid. Not saying I’m a Schwinn freak, but it rides silently like a Cadillac.

    Excellent! thumbsup.gif

    With a decal on the guard there is no question that's a 1953. The 52 models did not have guard decals. 1953 was when all the unnamed/unmarked models finally got a guard decal and the feather guard was made with a flat section for a decal.

    This confuses me because I have a hornet that is dated 1952 and it has the decal on the guard like this one.
