I've always thought they looked cool, and the catalog renderings show them that way on the Motorbike/Cycleplanes.
But, was told by the folks in the know, that they didn't actually come that way.
It's kind of like the gothic ring on the Aerocycle.
The drawings show them with that ring, and that type of ring does exist, but every unmolested original as found Aerocycle always has the Sweetheart ring on it.
Motorbikes are the same way.

What about Tony's aerocycle I posted above? Thoughts?

Tonys is half inch. No matter how much one hopes to rewrite history, that ring never came on a schwinn after 34-35, especially as late as 38-39. I'm not saying I've seen every bike but I have seen a ton and none ever had that.
