Naw that's a parts bike. 40 frame, BC model tank, etc
I thought that tank looked funny! the no gills is also a giveaway.
No gills AND the location of the tank straps is the clue without seeing the other side for door or horn button.
I need a bigger phone
Figured someone would notice

It is pieced together, I believed that the frame and parts were a prewar motorbike, I was able to obtain a 39 tank from a BA model. I guess not a true "motorbike" , but since I could never find a motorbike to buy, thought this was pretty cool. Leaving it "crusty", plus it is a good rider that I really enjoy.
I just picked up a Schwinn Cadillac men's bike #B99307. Looking for info and Year.
Thank you for any help!
1946 if the serial number is under the crank.
And a nice one at that!
The fenders look mismatched and possibly prewar,but overall a nice bike.
What do y'all make of this. Serial number on bb. Rear facing dropouts. But the serial is R593282. No original paint bare single bar frame.
Late 1934. .....................
Is there a serial list for pre 1935 Schwinn bikes. I have what I think is a b9. Serial is 252071. No letters just number. Would like to know the year it was born. Thanks Big Moe
Page #1 post #17. Although some say the list is flawed.
Darla is stamped C44583
Sounds about right, the '57s were cantilevered to my knowledge.
Only one thing doesn't quite match on that site...
I have the cloverleaf chainring, is that skiptooth? And the chainguard is the winged one. According to this, I've got the right fenders and rack coming (DX 9 hole), I only need a tank and Rocket Ray.
I know where the Rocket Ray is but I can't get a hold of the seller here. The tank would cost me as much as the whole bike.
Oddly enough the Rocket Ray is shown on the 1952 and 1957 models but a torpedo is featured on the 1953-56.
I'm not so sure that my bike was built for 1953, but I really want the Rocket Ray on it. I have ducktail fenders coming and it will look very nice. Fat is where it's at.
Trying to get the exact year ? Anyone know ?
1st off, without a letter you can't get an exact date. You've got an welded kick stand and two numbers look right but the last three don't. Based on kick stand and numbers on Bottom bracket you're gonna be 47-52 and with that you should have s-2 rims too, not drop center ., I could be wrong but it also looks like somebody ground off your serial numbers and added in the last 3 regardless, you aint got a letter. The white paint under the color on bottom bracket means it's also been repainted, it would be redlead primer, not white. . Maybe the letter is under the paint?
Thank you for the info, yes the lett is B but the last two numbers looks like it only was partly stamped this is what it looks like B852oo (and uneven jagared) right on the radius of the crank it could have been drowned in Panit ? I will sand it down and see what I find. Yes it looks repainted so I am going to get it Restored if it’s worth it please look at this photo and thank you for your information
