Wore out three sets of tires already!
Came across this thread after purchasing this 1942 Victory step thru. Serial number J09951

It has seen better days, and had some upgrades to keep her going. What keeps this original family bike from the dumpster, is the original paperwork, including original War Price and Rationing certificate

I'm amazed that the paperwork survived. You need to invest in a lottery ticket while you're at it!

Thank you for posting this documented piece! Very interesting to learn that the J series can now be placed at least mid way thru 1942. Was this piece acquired from the original owners family?

I live for the CABE
That maroon one that was posted on here 41 I believe
Thanks @67 stingray ! Nice to see that bike getting some love. The frame looks nice. Is there any chance you could take a pic of the bottom of the bottom bracket where the serial number is? Your bike was built at a time when Schwinn was changing the frame construction/welding of the bottom brackets on these bikes. I added you as the bike contributor on the list.

So the crank leg is a 6.5"?
Yes that H502 casting looks identical to the marks on my OG crank.

@dogdart I added your bike to the list and changed all the J0 and earlier serials to 1942.
