    As a side note, It seems to me that lots of folks gravitate toward Harley, Indian, Chiefs, Miamis, etc. I prefer a bike that the "Masses" don't desire.
    By doing so, I have a more obscure bike, a bike that may cost less, and a bike that someone isn't dying to covet/steal.

    I think that's because a lot of us also have motorcycles and like the connection. V/r Shawn

    Only in this case, Schwinn actually built the motorcycle and the bicycle.

    Model 419 Motorcyke that appears in the H-D Museum ...
    restored by gentleman whose goal was to have as many
    H-D bicycles placed into the Museum as possible.

    Different philosophy about what gets restored and what
    doesn't ... back in the day ......

    I've known about this truss bridge Harley for 3-4-5 years now and took some pics of the head badge since I remembered this post.
    Looks to be the bottle cap style without screws. May make a run at the bike someday but need to collect more info / knowledge on fair value.
