I recently purchased this bike at a barn sale. The tires are shot and the chain and pedals will need replaced. It is cleaning up nicely and appears to be orginal paint and surface rust. The problem is, after hours of research, I cant identify what I have. I thought it was a 1941 Dx. However, when I pulled the torpedo light top off, there are instructions for the light with what I believe to be a date of 9/48. Can anyone help?

Thank you! I am very much a rookie at this but it has been so much fun. I cant wait to get her all shined up to ride.

I believe the built-in kickstand is a post-war feature, but yours still has the earlier "drop center" rims (S-2 rims were introduced in 1948, if I remember correctly), so I'm thinking just after the war. There should be a serial number under the bottom bracket that you can check against the "Schwinn Serial Number Reference" thread at the head of this forum.
