Picked this up and the serial number on the bottom bracket is H26877. Thought it was a 53 blue Spitfire but the rear frame shape is throwing me. I seem to recall that shape headbadge also but no luck so far. I know you guys will know all this in a heartbeat. Messinger seat Morrow hub skiptooth funky kickstand.

Prewar. Morrow hub might have a date code. Crank might be dated. Looks like the badge is there, why not clean it up ad see what it says? H sounds like 1941 according to this:

1941 SpitSomeFire. Where did you find this! :eek: There were a few badges with that outline. Can you make out any markings on it, I sure can't. Admiral maybe?

Ok on the hub Under the Eclipse lettering

Can't make out anything on the badge. Kinda looks like a gold reverse V near the top

Could be wrong, but doesn't look like the bottom hole in badge doesn't match the frame hole. Looks like it's been on this bike forever though..... anyone else see it? Nice patina!

That's great! I love those badges. I have a little history of Lazarus starting on page 165 of the book called "The Many Faces of Schwinn Volume I" I wrote about the many dealer badges found on Schwinn bicycles. Barry

Got the badge wet and that is definitely a plane like Barry said and it is the right shape badge. Further Lazarus was a department store here in Columbus OH and I think I see that lettering also

With the plane being gold, would that indicate a reverse paint/markings from the one Barry posted?

Was gonna point out the same thing about the bottom hole on the badge not matching the frame hole. I also think I see the ears for the rear drop stand.

There are no ears this bike came with a kickstand. V/r Shawn
