Craigslist deal I just could not pass up. I believe this is a 1952, and if anyone could verify and tell me a little more about it, I would sure appreciate it.

Serial number: C67349


24" front wheel.

The rack is nice. Not bent at all. There was a weird hole drilled into it though.

Like I said, I think its a '52, but I'd love to have one of you experts verify.

Also, does this bike come with a tank? There's no holes drilled into the front fender for a light.

Rack is from a Higgins or something. On the Morrow rear hub, you will find a letter and number on the other side of the 36-13 stamping. It will also indicate the year of the bike if the wheels are original to the bike.

No holes for a light means it probably was a base model and likely didn't have a tank. Look for rub marks on the frame where the tank would go.
Rack is not Schwinn. Looks like JC Higgins or something.

I'll be waiting on the hub date here. Definitely NOT a '52. Serial number's in the wrong place!
Nice old bike but that 24" front wheel ain't got a home there.

Added it to the list.

Lol we must have been typing at the same time, as i did not see your reply at the time.
I find it funny our response to the rack was almost the same.

Thanks for your input, REC. That number on the hub is P2.

I take back what I said. Looks like the front wheel can be tossed and not soaked, it appears to be a smaller wheel. :eek:

Are those red stripes or black on the back wheel? I may have a matching front drop center if it’s red.

It is smaller. Now I got to find a 26" wheel, white, with black stripes. Any recommendations for authentic-looking tires?
