    I recently bought a 1951 schwinn built
    Bf Goodrich I was told it was a DX after
    Unpacking it I think it's a B model.... anyone have any insight into Goodrich bikes?

    Definitely not a DX. Have checked the serial number to determine the year?

    In 1951 the BF Goodrich Leader model used that style frame. Their version of the Panther did as well, but with a different style paint job.
    You could put a Schwinn badge on it and it becomes a Hornet.

    They were a major seller of Schwinn bicycles through the Tire shops.

    It is not a DX. It is a "D" model straight bar. V/r Shawn

    I'm assuming these frames didn't come with tanks?...

    They did. Straight bar tanks, however, do not come cheap. Do a search for Schwinn Hornet to see the type used.

    Your frame appears to have had a tank so it may have been a D-19 model, AKA Hornet.

    It all depends on what year you're talking about. I believe you described the later models like the 1955.
