    1939 Schwinn New World Frame/Fork + Extras

    **SOLD** This might be a little to C & V for this crowd but It has the possibility of being a great city bike. It is all original from what I can tell and probably around 38-39. The frame measures 21" center to top and was set up with 26 x 1-3/8" tires. I have fit a set of 700 x 28 on there and they fit so if I keep it I was planning on doing a 650b conversion on it. There is a pic of the bike with 700c wheels installed to show the clearance.

    The original fork was bent and straightened but I sourced a replacement in the same color. It will need the cylinder switched out but between the two forks you should be able to make one working unit. I also have the original A.S. Key that goes along with it! Everything is pretty straight as far as the fenders and chainguard and I really like the detail on the front fender. One of the fender braces was mismatched when I got it but I sourced an original as well. It doesnt have the same patina as the rest of them but it is the correct age. I also have the original crank but no chainring.

    The left rear dropout has been opened up a little bit compared to the other side but it should be easily fixed.

    Looking to get $225 + shipping from 46237 (Indianapolis,IN) OBO

    Bikes are cool, even the dumb ones.
