    Hello All! Picked this guy up but have no idea what it is? Repainted, the welds are rough and both sides of the fork drops are closed off. The truss rods are welded to the fork as well. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

    Looks like a schwinn built bicycle.
    Probably 20s era.
    Nice bones for a fun project.
    Thanks for sharing the pictures
    Hope this helps.

    Very nice! Is there a serial number under the bottom bracket? Have you ever figured out what year it is?

    I believe pre '34 didn't start with a letter. That style frame was used quite a few years. V/r Shawn
