The obvious Schwinn-built pre/post wwII indicators are fork ends (pre) vs. dropouts (post) and the welded-on proprietary kickstand (post). \If it~s pre, there is a set of more subtle distinctions at angelfire.com/rant/allday101/schwinncodesrebuild1.html
including stuff like how the serial number is stamped.
Can you post a picture or two, please?
