Hi....I'm new here so I don't know if I'm posting in the right place or not so someone please correct me if I need to be posting somewhere else. I'm new to the bicycle collecting world and I just got this Ladies CWC Roadmaster and I don't have a clue what year it is. I would appreciate any help with it.

I'm gonna say 1948. Wrong seat, pedals, grips, missing headlight and has been repainted. Otherwise complete and correct bike. Welcome to the CABE. V/r Shawn

P.S. Are you Charlie's better half?

Even a red bike can change it's color...that was a nice color. Miss Rustoleum #17? :D

Whatever you do, try and find at least the correct headlight, it's worth it...

And Welcome To The CABE!

Thank you....I'll be on the lookout for the headlight as well as a seat, pedals and grips. (As soon as I find out what it's supposed to have so I'll know what to look for) :)

I believe seat would likely be a Troxel, pedals Torringtons--maybe Meteors, light like the one shown below, and not sure on grips. None of this is really hard or expensive. Light will probably be most expensive piece. @ratina may be able to help more. V/r Shawn

Nice bike to restore. You beat me to the purchase button. I was going to grab this. My husband is a welder and was all set to fix the 3 cracked frame joints. Troxel seats are easy to find, grips too. The light will take awhile and cost about what you paid for the bike and shipping. A set of Torrington 9s or Meteors would be a good choice for pedals. It'll be a sweet bike once you repair it, repaint it, do the mechanicals, find parts, etc. Have fun with it.

Make sure you weld these broken joints, and check all the others too. You wouldn't want it to break while you're riding it.

Hi Deb....It turned out to be in better condition that I expected. My neighbor's a welder so I'll make sure the joints are taken care of before I do anything else. I looked at it the first time it was listed on eBay but passed it up because of that and then, when it was relisted, I decided it wouldn't be too big of a deal to repair so I went for it. It'll probably be a winter project because I'm working on another one right now.

Cindy,
I have a correct Troxel seat for this, if you are interested. Deb
