Finally riding a big boys bike
Hey fellow Cabers: One of my best friends passed away this past December due to covid. His wife (my wife's cousin) asked me to help sell two of his bikes, a 40-41 Schwinn and a post war girls B6. If possible and if affordable I would like to make her a fair offer for the prewar bike or depending on value I may have to list it here on the CABE. Either way I want to help her since he was the breadwinner and there's no more income, she could use the funds. My buddy had this bike for about 15 yrs or so. The bike didn't have a rear rack when he acquired it and always wanted to find an original rack but never did. However he bought a black aftermarket rack yrs ago but never put it on so I recently installed it though it's wrong for the bike. I'm asking for comments on it, it's parts and perhaps a realistic value. Thanks in advance for your input.

Was the Streamliner name used prewar? I thought that was a post war name. Gary

I thought the same thing too that Streamliner was only put on post war bikes. Maybe Schwinn introduced Streamliner in the prewar era and carried it thru into post war? I don't really know, but after looking at Shawn's bike maybe it's a confirmation it was also a prewar model.

Do a search in the Schwinn section and you will find more than a few prewar versions going back to 1939. I believe '39 may be the first year for BFG badged Schwinn bikes. Anyone seen any earlier? V/r Shawn
