    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...

    Aren't these frames in this post considered curved double bars?

    I ask because it looks like Schwinn is calling a 1938 Roadster frame a double bar and the frames in this post are curved double bars?

    "Doublebar" vs "Double Bar" for model names.

    Ok, educate me. What is a double bar, if not two bars? The only difference I am seeing is truss rods.

    The "Double (Curved) Bar Roadster" has 2 "parallel" top tubes with a straight down tube. Your DX's 2 top tubes converge more at the rear, and don't have quite the same arc as each other. These bikes were made 36-38.

    Howdy, I love the bike! What does the head badge say? Thanks, Barry
