This one is gonna take some of the masters to figure out.
except for the cottered crank, very similar to an early postwar Schwinn New World
here's a '46 Superior with a slightly different cottered crank
'46 Continental is close
basically, a Schwinn copy of a Raleigh Sports
I'm no expert but it sure looks like it was a Paramount Tourist, but no lugs. Notice the sliced off seat stays at the seat tube. Chain ring looks prewar and could be a late pre war Superior/World Racer converted. Fork and front hub are later issues.
39 pic of the crank set.
The more I look at that frame the idea that it could be a Schwinn disappears. Lots of Schwinn parts but not the frame.
Frame and chainset look a little French, and does that read "made in France" on the front hub?
What is the rear hub?
Looks like a bit of a mish-mash, but could make a nice rider.
curious, because it's sure fillet-brazed
Interesting chaingaurd mounts. Not standard mounts.
