Traveler had SS fenders, Varsity fenders were painted.
So probably a Varsity then. I was thinking it might be. Would the chain guard have had a chrome edge or just a two-tone paint scheme? It's all gold now.

My 46 Continental build just arrived, and this frame is cracked as well. Uggh!
I had such high hopes for this one, and now I’m just going to pull the plug on it.
I’ll be in the market for a good quality version of the same, if any of you guys spot one.
I’m not in the mood to try and repair this one, since it’s original condition was such an important part of the build.
I’m over it now.[/QUOTE]

Are you absolutely sure that's not superficial with just paint cracking? I've seen cracks like that and when the paint was removed it was actually nothing to be worried about.

I looked at it with a magnifying glass, and it looks like it’s a crack.
It is right at the edge of the brazing joint, so it could just be a separation in the paint.
At this point, I don’t have that much to lose, so I may just build it up and see how it goes.
I don’t think it’s the type of thing that would result in a catastrophic failure.
It just took a little bit of the wind out of my sails.

Oh man, I was looking forward to seeing this build, sorry to hear that Marty.

I got this one yesterday. It had Victor rat trap pedals on it so I put on a pair of Unions for now. I also put on new brake shoes and lubed it up. I have not checked the serial number yet, the rear hub is stamped 52. The dynohub works and the bike rides nice. I'm not sure if I'll leave the rack on it. If it is a 52, what are the correct pedals? Is the Brooks seat a replacement? I'm assuming the dynohub and lights are dealer installed accessories.

Schwinn bottle cap pedals most likely.

Being a bit of a newby to this. This was apparently what my 1942 blckout New World would have looked like. Badge holes are vertical, so it would have been a BF Goodrich. I think mine had a skip tooth and dogleg cranka nd a New Departure D also blacked out. But I bought the remains after it was parted. Nice to see this to visualize my goal!

Wow. So, in 1959, my very first full sized bike looked just like this (except the transfers did not say "world") I belive mine was a 1954 model, exactly the same color. My dad bought it used and showed me how to fix things. I was 10. Sorry, but about age 13, I decided it needed to be FLAMBOYANT RED! Well, why not?
It was my constant companion for about 6 years.
