Hello all cabers... I been a member here for awhile. Well i just bought came up on this schwinn DX possibly for a good price. I was told from previous owner that it is a 46' or 47' . i did some research on google and on here also. The SN is C87048 Maybe i can get anyone elses second opinion on what they think about bike or if it is deffinately a 46. Thanks..... P.S i also have the correct era tank, rack, and a pencil tip kickstand.

Despite what you may read the 'pencil' stand was not '46 only. I had an original '47 B6 with this stand and have heard of them even later. That said the stand on it may very well be correct. V/r Shawn

@REC What does your serial number study say about this person's serial number? C87048

Also, I would leave the kickstand it came with; no matter the deceision on the year model...

Learned to drive on a 1952 hardtop Chevrolet; Is yours a HT? Yes, I see the 3 piece rear window; '51 or '52?

Is that a Morrow rear hub? You could check the date code stamp and go from there if that wheel is original to the bike, maybe a P, Q ,R or S?

It is a 52 correct hardtop ...

Okay. I have an L stamped Morrow that is a '42. Looks like that would be '46 if they used the O, some codes skipped it but doesn't seem like it here.
Nice looking bike!

Can see the side trim now in your avitar; '52. Also, your center grill bar will have 5 'airplanes', '51 had just the bar; and park lenses are FULL lense ('51 was 1/2 lense. Front fender side trim was different on '51; also often a lower 'rock shield' @ fender bottom.

Wait on REC's reply; he may even be able to tell you what quarter of the year your DX was made... Both DX and Chevy Deluxe are cool!

That "P" should have a number from 1-4 after it. This would be the quarter of the year and I'll guess a "4". V/r Shawn

You say you have the correct era tank, rack and tapered stand. I assume the tapered stand is not on this frame. Looking at the paint, I see no signs that this had a tank originally. Possible unequipped DX? The fenders, frame and guard show varying degrees of patina so if this was pieced together dating the bike by the hub date might not be very accurate.
