Alan Brase

Finally riding a big boys bike
Pretty sure they were built in "the cage" by the same few men that made Paramounts. Cheaper dropouts, slightly less expensive tubing, but for all intents damned near the same as a Paramount Tourist. Superb OE paint and striping on this one. Maybe rarer than a Paramount? They are still out there!

Riding a '38 Autocycle Deluxe
Big money for a 3-speed, but at least we've gotten to see one. I recall that green 9-speed variation on the CABE awhile back and it also was pretty unique. They would both be really good finds for the person who likes obscure, old Schwinn 3-speeds with fillet brazed frames. Hopefully someone here bought it and we can see it more.

The paint/color on this one was so perfectly suited for such a rare model.
I guess we could call it, the Gold Standard, for Schwinn Three Speeds.

Well, the bird is in hand!
I’ll still need to do a final fit and adjust after being packed and shipped, but overall, this bike is in beautiful original condition.
Here’s the backstory on it, from the previous owner.

One other interesting detail that I noticed, is that it has the letters CM stamped underneath the serial number.
Possibly meant to signify it’s designation as a Clubman model?

Pretty Cool!

Cruisin' on my Bluebird
Put on upright bars, get a fedora and sharp Mad Men era clothing and time travel with that bike to the late 50’s to 60’s era. A pipe would be optional. Congratulations Marty !
Lose the fedora for the nice slick back doo of Dapper Dan man, and the pipe is mandatory, its contents are the option.
