This rack has been a good paperweight so far. That catalog pic is of a BC though isn’t it? I was thinking this C-model may have had a nine hole rack.

:DI just wanted to know because I wish that I could be like the cool kids, ‘cause all the cool kids, they seem to fit in

That’d be great if I could get a pic of this same bike with an original rack. I think @TheDXjedi has one of these but it has ‘ears’ for a drop stand. I can’t find any info on which year has what for 1940ish C-mods.

So does this mean I fit in with the cool kids????
Here's my '39 C, now with the 9 hole rack

The rack you have would be really cool mounted on a C. I have one here like it, but it is slated for a different frame at this point.

:cool::cool: Very nice, great condition, thanks for posting. It looks like the DX profile Miller stand was used on the later versions of C-Models versus dropstands. Nine hole racks look great either way on these bikes. I'll post pics of my setup when I receive the bike...
The ambiguity in prewar Schwinn facts! Love it.

Jake,
My guess is you bought the bike from Pete Deitrich (onecatahula)? I kept looking at that ad if that is the one. Super deal there.
I was considering it to complete one with the tank and fenders... Considering - too broke to think hard about it, and that was a really nice piece as it was. This one:

I bought a pair of fenders about a month ago and am trying to come close to the color of "old" on this one. Rides like a rolls!

Yes, Pete's, should be in the mail soon. I'm stoked! Your second C mod' looks fantastic as is. I've been wanting to do a build like that with a 3spd Nexus

Rustoleum Painter's Touch 2x Gloss Colonial Red seems close, if a bit brighter.

Maybe you can try paint matching the fork? I was amazed at the paint match my local auto paint supply store did for me. I gave them 1/2 of this Monark tank and they got it spot on. The top on the light is spray painted.
