Cruisin' on my Bluebird
I bought this bike some time ago because i wanted a prewar bike to build into a WWII military tribute. At that time, I wasn't really concerned about the year. I did figure out it was pre 1937 by the older style head badge and figured that it's either a '35 or '36. Now I've come to the point of trying to restore it to some of its original glory and would really like to pin down the actual year. Here is a picture of the numbers stamped into the bottom bracket. Any help would really be appreciated. I can post more pictures if needed.
Thanks,
Ed

How ironic. That’s my original thread. I had forgotten that I had even asked about this when I first got it. So I’m going with a 1935 Snyder built Elgin for Sears. I’m satisfied.
Thanks,
Ed
