Vicious Cycle

Finally riding a big boys bike
View attachment 1498609View attachment 1498610Hi- 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!
I would be interested in buying the Truck if you want to sell it.

Thanks, David

Hi All- Thank you all for the great replies and interest in the Cycle Truck. There are three other bikes, the first two are a 60s Armstrong and a 60s Robin Hood. Pics attached. The last bike is another Schwinn, late 70s, I'll post a pic of that later today. If anyone is interested in buying any of these or the cycle truck, please message me. Thanks again to all!! David

Also the earliest Cycle Trucks did NOT have the drop stand mounted to the fork . Notice on this picture NO threaded bosses to mount the stand . They used a traditional frame stand until they figured out it wouldn’t stand up when loaded . So it’s definitely prewar. They started making these in 39 so it could even be as early as that .

Prewar cycletrucks did have a front drop stand that attached to and pivoted on the front axle...

Correct. Prewar had special hardware that mounted it to the axle shaft. All Schwinn Cycle Trucks had drop stands.....just mounted different pre-war/post-war
