While dismantling a 1963, American schwinn frame.. I came across this configuration

It appears that its a pressed frame race, a bearing and a bearing cup. My question is what does this belong to, obviously ....not a Schwinn middleweight . Thanks for looking.

I thought there would be a bearing cup on bottom and the top, not a pressed in race, But what do I know....Learn something everyday

I've seen this setup on a few Schwinns. Can't remember what years / models though.

Thanks guys....It's great to have people with knowledge and resources. So was this an special order item or did it come on "Deluxe " models?

The deluxe headset was on many Schwinn lightweights, Jaguars, Corvettes, Phantoms, B models, Fair Lady's and more. Pretty common for the higher end models and starting at the lower end of the lightweights like the Varsity and Continental.
