Ok, I got this bike from a guy who traded it for rent he owed. I have really no idea of what it is or its value. He said it was a 1948 Schwinn, and that it was chromed. It also has a little generator for the headlight.
Any help in identifying it or pointing me in a direction of some forum or something that would be interested in this type of thing would be greatly appreciated.

Definitely not a Schwinn and not from 1948. I have no idea beyond that.

Thanks for the info. Any Ideas on what this style of bike is called if it has a name

Cruiser with a springer fork, I'd guess. If there are no decals or a headbadge, or serial numbers on this bike to help identify it, then it might be a home-built machine. If it's a one-off, then assessing a value is problematic. If I may offer some advice, next time someone offers you a possession in lieu of rent, ask that person to sell the item themselves and present you with the cash. There's probably a good reason why he didn't do that before.

Here's one that looks a lot like yours...
There are numerous web sites that sell lowrider and cruiser style bikes. This is just a cheap repop of an old cruiser or "Schwinn" style bike.
