Maybe you could answer a question? I don't know that much about the different features on prewar Schwinn bicycles. I have a bicycle for an example in the book that has the Aluminum fenders. I would like to tell what years you could order this option. Do you know?
Thank you! Barry
I do not know the answer to that, but maybe someone will chime in.

Here's a pair of Texas edition bikes his and hers built by AMF, it will be a few days before I can get a picture of the head badge sticker.

Howdy! I'm looking for a photo of a 1930's - 1950's Schwinn built Texan bicycle sold by Massie Supply Company. I have an ad showing them for sale in 1940.

Hoowdy! Anyone have a photo of a Texan Bicycle? This badge popped up for sale and I can't find anything about it. I think it might be Schwinn? Thanks! Barry

I used to shop in Massie's in downtown Fort Worth back in the day.
Hello, how are you? My name is Barry. Would you mind describing Massie's to me. A little about the building, what street it was on, what other things besides bikes they sold, etc. Do you know when it closed? Thank you very much, Barry

Not at all, I live in North Idaho. I just wanted something about Massie to put in my book, about badges I'm writing. Massie is in the book along with the badge, but not much more. Barry

This Texan Bicycles ad "Built for Massie by Schwinn" is from a 1946 Fort Worth phone book. I don't have the phone book, just found the pic on the interwebs.

From another Web source is this 1947 photo of the Massie Supply building advertising "Bicycles ".
