'Lil Knee Scuffer
Hello! New member/long time lurker here with my find this week I picked up. I've been trying to put together a fleet of antique bikes for the family to ride, and got this one to use as my rider while taking it as close to original as I can. The PO said it was a '35 Schwinn, but serial number, etc didn't match that. The folks on the Schwinn threads suggested 1936 Elgin Oriole. Figured I'd post it in this section to get more input and see if I can locate what is correct or missing to make her whole. Not sure about paint...appears old and don't see anything under it where there are scratches, but chain guard is definitely repainted. Serial number is A117264. Has the grease fittings at the head and crank area, as well as on the rear hub. I know the chain ring is wrong, and the PO said he put the light on himself. Has drop center rims, New Departure hub and brake arm. Missing drop stand and head badge. Did it ever have a tank? Any other thoughts or comments? Thanks!
