Finally riding a big boys bike
This October I acquired a Cleveland Welding Company Luxury Liner. I'm in the process of cleaning it up and I'm wondering if anyone can help me put a date on it. I'm thinking 1948 or 49. Below is a picture of the serial number.

CWC Serial Numbers

Have you read the "Cleveland Welding S/N Project?" thread on this forum? I've found it to be very helpful in dating my two CWC Roadmasters. Your Luxury Liner has a suffix of Cw, which according to post #63, by RMS57, broadly dates it to 1947-1949. With a prefix of "A", it may have been built closer to the earlier date.

Wore out three sets of tires already!
You're in the ballpark. The Cw suffix was used from 47-49. Post a picture of the dropouts and complete bike.
