I have a post in the "Vintage mountain bike". It is a 1936. I thought it was a C model. I learned that it wasn't.

Still gathering parts, but here is my 1948 Streamliner. I’ve got fenders and a front fork as well, but I need to grab them from my storage still.

Here's a few photos of my 1956 B.F. Goodrich Schwinn Deluxe Hornet, this bicycle use to belong to Joe Mitchel one of the first old time bicycle collector's I met when I first started collecting bicycles, it was purchased from his estate upon his passing, his favorite bicycle to ride, as I would always see him riding it and displaying it at shows. Still the same way he had it with all the accessories.
The original Red paint has faded to an Orange patina and combined with the Black it gives it that Harley-Davidson look. Has NOS Blackwall B.F. Goodrich Silvertown Tires. Beautiful Balloon Tire Bicycle Ride !

Just picked up this 1950 Schwinn BFG Hornet. It’s been restored but paint is NICELY done. Bendix yellow band kickback hub / girls chainring not correct but my knees will be OK with it.

Had a chance to spend some time with this. While paint is nice someone clear coated it with some stuff that Goo Gone melts. A real messy PITA to clean but gotta be done. Serial number says it’s a 1950 so off comes the Hornet decal on chainguard which didn’t make an appearance until 1952. Will put a BFG roundel on CG instead of the Schwinn one. Also add a Schwinn decal on seat tube to look proper. Decided to swap out 1/2” drive train/60’s Kickback drivetrain for a skip tooth / sweetheart chainring / ND mod D drivetrain. Tires are non-matching no-name blackwalls so will put on a set of old period correct Nylon Goodyear All Weather tires until I can find/afford a set of Silvertown’s. Also on the lookout for a proper Mesinger B1 to replace repop Persons saddle from a repop ColumbiaRX5. Pedals are off a repop Phantom, so will look for a set of clean Torrington’s. Like my bikes clean and simple so removed speedo and modern vinyl West Point sticker. It’s always something, but that’s what makes this hobby fun! Not a huge fan of fully restored bikes but killer price on this FB Marketplace fund pulled the bux out of my pocket like magic! Pictures to follow.
