Is this a rebadged Schwinn and what year is it?
Red, blue, and green opalescent with ivory trim or gold box pins were available in 41. @Dave K used to own a cool crusty straight bar in this color combo.1941 Schwinn built, Columbus Cycle and Sporting Goods, Roadmaster.
One of the few badge names they used, so not too unusual there, but that Opal Blue color most certainly is.
What’s up with that?
And take that ugly ass Delta box off the frameIt’s kind of odd, that the rack discolored so much, compared to the rest of the bike.
I’d be tempted to upgrade that to the chrome top option, and go with a dual drum brake set on the wheels.
This bike has the potential to be really stunning.
I’d take it to the next CWC ride, and show those guys what a real Roadmaster looks like.
