not sure-believe its postwar-probably 1946 only thing-seems '46 had some other peculiarities! let's let experts weigh in on these. I'm interested to find out too![/QUOTE]
Pretty interesting, just like the tapered kick stand.
Semaphore turn signal. Mounted next to left and right grips. Flick the lever and signal flag pops out. Flag is on steel like a tape measure. Flick lever the other way and flag coils back into plastic housing.
I had these mounted on my Schwinn Hornet bars years ago until I loaned it to a Storefront for a display on main street. It was a stupid mistake and when I got bike back right one was missing and bar mount was gone from this one. I dont even know if these were intended for bicycles , but orig mount fit 1" bars perfectly.
