Hi- I am a new member here at CABE. I have been cleaning out my parent's attic, and found several vintage bikes including this Schwinn Cycle Truck, serial number I50041. Looking through some posts here, I think I determined its a postwar bike, but that is about it. If anyone can tell me more about it, how original it is parts-wise and what it might be worth I would greatly appreciate it. I restore cars but know next to nothing about old bikes! Thanks!

Very cool bike buddy and a wonderful find! First off, its missing the chain guard and the original drop stand for the front (unless its laying somewhere I cant see it, it has a Rollfast chain ring and an incorrect seat but other than that its a beautiful Cycle Truck! The best part is I just noticed the original basket and brackets laying in front of the bike, how cool!
Its pre-52 since the serial number is under the bottom bracket and its actually earlier since the rear wheel mounts up in a pull-out method and not a drop out method.
Very wonderful color and pinstripes even though its repainted and the vintage travel stickers are just awesome! Im jealous bud.
