After posting the pix, I looked it up online, & couldn't find a '53 Tiger, either. This frames ser.# does fall within 1953. J 2**** " Tiger" is on the chainguard, so I doubt it is original. It also has a 3spd S/A hub dated ' 63, so it looks to already be a Frankenbike. I am aware of Schwinn tire sizes. The rack I have seen on Corvettes, too. Maybe I will just do some good cleaning up, waxing, & put a pair of modern cruiser wheelsets & chain on it to get it rolling again .
Thanks for the info !
