OK - here are the Cycle-Trucks that live here with us. Brief description above each photo...
#1 - '57 Ross Delivery-Cycle - bought as bare frame and fork
08 57 Ross CT.jpg


#2 - Late Worksman - Bought as what you see - still gathering parts at this time
010 Worksman LG~CT 1.jpg


#3 - '39 18" frame Schwinn CT1 - Still in box it was shipped in as long as it has been here - will hit the stand when I have a space in time. Too many irons in the fire still at this point
39 CT1 18.jpg


#4 - '39 Schwinn 20" frame CT1 - Rebuilt, not a restoration
39 CT1 20.jpg


#5 - '39 Schwinn 20" frame CT2 - Rebuild underway. Most of the parts on hand.

#6 - '41 Schwinn CT2 - Original paint and stripes. some work was done after purchase.

#7 - '46 Schwinn CT1 - Bought as bare frame only

#8 - '48 Schwinn CT2 - Rebuild underway, near ready to put color on. See next photo for basket that will be on this one when completed.
48 CT1 ~.jpg


#9 - '50 Schwinn CT1 - Not a restoration as bought. Wrong basket for bike, basket will go to the '48, and this one will be small basketed when done. This one will also get a refresh when time allows. It has a lot of little things that I want to address, but is a good rider presently.
50 CT2.jpg


#10 - '52 Schwinn CT1 - First of a pair of '52 models, my favorite year for some reason...
52 CT1.jpg


#11 - '52 Schwinn CT2 - Second of the pair. This was a former USPS delivery bike, and had the asset tag still attached when I got it.
52 CT2.jpg


#12 - '57 Schwinn CT1 - Bought mostly complete and there was a big hitch in finishing this one (three years getting it done - really long story)
57 CT1.jpg


#13 - '65 Schwinn CT2 - restored (non-original paint colors) with all the NOS parts I could find, and the rest of the stuff was rechromed. Basket was repaired and is not plated, but painted. Bike is straight black & black metallic in color and is really gorgeous under sunlight! Corrrected seat - Mesinger 7000, now in place.

#14 - '67 Schwinn CT1 - Original paint, chainguard decal replaced with earlier model style by previous owner. Really nice condition overall! Also has Mesinger 7000 seat in place now. I need to take new photos of these last two ('65 & '67)

That's the group for now...

There are a couple of new additions since the first entry in Nov, 2018, and I keep running across others that seem to catch my eye.
We'll start with what started out life with intention of being a Pow-R-Truck, but never got the "Pow-R". A naturally aspirated '48 model that is very original even still:
1138043

Even still has the factory tires and tubes!
Next Addition is a war-time model '43:
1138045

Pretty nice for what it is!
The next one came from South Dakota, and the signs were what got me to grab it:
1138058

A short while later I got a note asking if I'd be interested in this one. I figured what the heck, and it lives here now too. This one is NOT original in either size or make-up... It's the Shrunken Cycle-Truck! Altered in Louisiana at a now closed shop, and made from two bikes - one end is a what changed the appearance so much! 24" in the rear, standard Cycle-Truck up front, but reduced in size proportionately. It is a hoot to ride.
1138059

Then I found this one in the CABE Classifieds - It got my attention for some unknown to me reason, but I picked it up anyway. I'm still puttering with it so this photo is the result so far - It's a December of '67 model:
1138062

After that one, there was another one that popped up. I broke my rule on duplication (same model/year/bike) as this one appeared to be pretty much original and the one I already had was built from parts and was not original pretty much at all, but did make a nice bike and a great rider. This was another '57 Chain Bike Corporation, Ross Delivery Cycle. So far I have not made any "restoration" plans for it, but am just putting it back together in the condition it was in when bought... other than some dent straightening and a quick stretch in the basket repair section of the shop. The basket is original and in darn near perfect(ly rusty) condition:
1138063

And the Basket:
1138323

Eventually I will post some other photos of this one as it is a really good example of the Ross breed. When I was looking for anything on these bikes trying to build the first one, I couldn't find doodley squat.
There was another recent addition but it may not make the cut . However, it did make the trip and is here for now anyway:
1138066

Thats all for now....
