Posted by: Pete TITLE: BALLOON: Trusport ??
I just picked up a Trusport ballooner.
Headbadge reads "TruSport" "Phila. Pa."
Has a New Departure model D hub.
Also a dogleg crank, sweetheart sprocket, inch pitch drivetrain, 26 x 2.125 tires.
The chainguard has 19 penny sized holes stamped in it, along length. Has Torrington stem.
I seem to have found another bike which defies finding on the ~net!
Any info would be appreciated.

I got a trusport pre war bike. The one I have is a Colson. Maybe the bike you have is in name only, look at other makes untill something seems to match. Good luck.

the dogleg&sweetheart made me think Schwinn built.
check this out:
Nostalgic.net/arc/bicycles/ is great to browse looking for features that match yours.
Have you looked at the bolt heads or crank hardware for the telltale AS insignia?
If you want, send me a picture. I~d enjoy it and try to help. Post pictures to the oldroads database too, and let us know when they~re up.
