    It is a SCHWINN.. But I have no info of the model at this time...

    But its a post WWII, bought in 1947.

    We are still looking for original schwinn emblems and signatures.. The only actual guide we have is some old black and white pictures in the early to mid 50's..

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Dexmax,

    Check out the Schwinn Forums, if you post picture
    (size it down its a bit large), they may be able to ID
    the frame. Its part of Schwinn's Heritage site, on the main page.
