Are you sure it is a Schwinn? Frame or fork appears bent. Post pictures of the head badge.

That's a horrible picture. It's clearly not a Schwinn as a Schwinn would have a welded (not bolt-on) kickstand.

A larger photo of the driveside and the head badge would be a big help.

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

Looks like an old Western Auto kids bike. the top "tube" is convertible to a girls bike, right? My kid brother had one in re back about '72 or so.

hmm western auto, could be ? ... However I believe it is much older than 70's .. I was thinking 4o's or 50's... there is NO front emblem, also nothing under the crank shaft or anywhere else I can identify.

Thanks

If it's pre-ww2 , then in is older than 60's or 70's .. I got a girls bike with it that has "49" at the end of a goup of numbers. Wondering if this is closer to the date range ..

Thanks
