Described as excellent. He is aware of OA but doesn't want to invest any time.

I wouldn't either. The time to totally strip, clean, and put it back together isn't worth it for a $300 sale in my opinion. That would be a loss of time--not an investment. Most people would rather get it as-is and go from there. V/r Shawn

Since the bike in question is a 3 gill, here is a thread showing @mrg 's 39 3 gill.


Not to continue but, I have 41 and it's straight but accordingly curved stays with drop stand ears considered late 41 or 42-3. Maybe me wr, wro, wrong so, PM me if conclusive fact you have. tks

...and the chain adjuster angle changes throughout the years, progressively more horizontal.
That's odd. It would mean that CWC changed from years of straight rear stays to curved and then, year or two later; 1940-41 back to straight. Technically, Backwards?

Honestly, I think the dropped chainstays started out as a Hawthorne thing, not necessarily a CWC only characteristic. I could very well be wrong.

Both CWC & Snyder with dropped chainstays
