Wore out three sets of tires already!
Looking for a Schwinn truss fork for pre-33 28” wheeled frame. Short steer tube. Can’t be bent. Will be repainted. Pic is for reference.

Thanks for the response but I only want to use a Schwinn fork. Truss rods are bolt ups.
 
I'm not sure the year that they switched, but I think if you want a fork for a pre 1933 Schwinn, the rods are brazed to the bottom of the fork. I believe that post 33 they are not brazed...
 
Interesting. I did not know that. Other than the racing models, the 28” wheel was gone by 36 I think. My frame doesn’t appear in the 33 and later literature that I have. Makes me wonder if I have the wrong fork on this one.

Hopefully some others will chime in. I had 2 28" Schwinns that I lost in a fire. One had the brazed on rods and one did not. The earlier one had the square badge. Also, the frames were slightly different. I still have a fork with the brazed on rods that I don't need.
 
That looks like the later frame. Are the head badge holes vertical or horizontal? If I remember correctly, the earlier frame's center (lower) top tube was fish mouthed where it connected to the down tube.
