I don't know the Year of this bike but it was my Dads bike i am restoring it to ride with a group of Vintage riders! Gonna be cool stuff. My dad said he use to drag it upstairs to take it outside to ride it, he was maybe 10

And suggestions on making the paint look new would be a great help. Working on the chrome now

One way to start is the headbadge. Since I didn't see shots that focused on it, there are two to consider.

The 'ball bearing' badge

and the round one with the diagonal logo panel

OH! Here's one I've never seen...

but this is a balloon tire bike and only the first two would apply, the second being postwar, around 1948 was it?

A MARVELOUS ride indeed!

Look on the BB, there is usually a four digit code stamped there. The two numbers are the year, in reverse, so '35' would be '53.

1954 it reads This was my Dads bike when he was little , my grandfather bought him a bike that he would grow into! They lived in a hilly area and he said he road this thing everywhere!
