    Got another project since I made the post above. Still trying to get moving on it, but it's here and so is most of what it will take to turn it into a rider.

    Fork is going to be changed. It looks a little bit off to me, and I have a couple of others hanging out here. Back again when it's on wheels and a stand.

    I have photos of a Schwinn with that fork. The bike looks original. Paint is the same on the fork, frame and fenders. I always thought maybe some guy in a shop was putting together bikes just before WWII and used what he had on the shelf? Another brand bike with the same color paint? If I can find the photos I have I'll post them. Barry

    This frame had no badge on it when I got it, so I don't know its' intended point of sale. The other one with this fork that is here was initially badged as a Fleet. I was told this would normally have been a Royal or something else that escapes my rather porous brain at the moment.
    I have no doubt it is a Schwinn fork, but I do have a doubt as to it being straight - it looks a little bit off. I have a Model C with the same rear triangle and the same fork, so I do believe it to be Schwinn. I also do not have another spare one like it, so it will most likely get replaced with the other type "cast" fork. It is what it is...
