Schwinn lover

Wore out three sets of tires already!
picked this 1952 straightbar project off a fellow caber. The serial number on the left rear dropout F 58362 dates it NOV 1952 it has a faded red headbadge & looks to be ram horn stencils on the frame bars guessing possibly a Hornet. Here's a few pics of it before starting breaking it down.

With that serial number's stamping date, 11/15 to 11/18/1952, you're right at the model year change over period and the bike was most likely built in early 1953. Only model that year with a straight bar and those markings was the Hornet. In 53 some of the older straight bar models were changed to the cantilever frames.
