Hi,
I just bought an old Roadmaster Luxury Liner and wanted to know what year it comes from and what the value of the bike is. Also, any idea where I could buy the white wall tires that match the looks of the original? Thanks and any help is greatly appreciated! Please check out the pictures!

@szathmarig Thanks for the quick response. I assumed that year as well. Are you getting that from the 52 that is tucked off to the right of the serial number? Also is there any important information to note about the roadmasters made in 52? Were their any significant changes made to this model that year? Was this model made by Cleveland Welding Company or AMF? Also would this bike be considered post war? Thanks for your help @szathmarig and anyone else who can answer these questions and the questions above!

@fordmike65 @szathmarig This is my first time on THE CABE. You guys totally rock! Thank you for being so helpful with information and linking me to more helpful people! I'm super stoked to start learning the site some more. @fordmike65 thanks for linking me to @John ebay page! I also reached out to him via private email as well. @CWCMAN anymore information on this bike is greatly appreciated! I love learning the history behind everything I acquire! Also, I am picking this bike up in person this weekend. Is there anything that I should keep an eye out for when I meet up and see the bike? The seller has mentioned that the only thing not original to the bike is the seat. I just want to have a few things to look out for so I don't get messed around. Thanks everyone!

This bike should have a light unit in the rack, make sure it's present, because it's a hard to find item. The repo Luxury Liner has different rack, and rack light.

Lucid Bikes,
szathmarig is correct. My preference and limited knowledge is with the prewar CWC bicycles.

The bike above does appear to be complete and original to my knowledge. This model bike was also reproduced once upon a time.

I may be wrong, but I believe the Carlisle lightening Darts were probably used on this bike originally. I also recommend John for his outstanding tires.

Good luck!

That looks like the correct saddle to me.
I don’t mean to intrude but I also have a road master which a can’t seem to find out what year it is. It has painted fenders instead of chrome ones. I was told it’s a 48 and the serial number is G08917. Thanks

@BLWNMNY Thanks! I'm happy the saddle looks correct! That is awesome that you think it should clean up nice! Any suggestions on how to clean up the chrome and the body at all?

@CWCMAN Thank you for the recommendation for John! I will definitely be grabbing some new tires from him hopefully! It should definitely help this old bike shine a little better! Also are carlyle lighting darts used for the headlight? What does that mean? Also, could you private message me a few pictures of your favorite prewar CWC bikes? I would definitely like to learn and see more! Thanks.
