Finally riding a big boys bike
So a few months ago I picked up this bike. When i got it most of the maroon paint was redone years ago in red. I am notorious for starting a project without taking before pics so thats the story. I have hours of time wet sanding the red paint off. Even the fender pinstripes were red. The ENTIRE front fender was red. Some still remains. The wheels were painted silver. I did the best i could to not damage original paint. Picked up a chainguard at ML. So i have some questions: What year, D serial number. Tank paint is bad but was WAY worse. It has tapped brackets. Is the front wheel correct or replaced back in the day? It has blackout hub. Would it have Schwinn tank decal or Autocycle? I am almost ready to assemble it. Have all the spring fork parts too. Let me know all thoughts. Thanks

Looks like a lot of work stripping off all that over paint. 😱 The serial is 1940 and it seems odd the front hub is blacked out. Maybe just painted by someone but the original finish suggests it's a war time hub.
