Posted by: Fred A TITLE: MISC: 1955 SCHWINN...model?????
I need some help. I purchased a mens cantilever framed 1955 Schwinn. It was spray bombed, but beneath the frame paint was bare metal, so no identifying decals. Fenders are not stainless steel, so it~s a lower model and has no clip for a tank. And of course the rims were bombed also, but I haven~t removed paint yet to see if it~s chrome or paint beneath. Grips are Schwinn script. Oh, and the saddle & original chain guard are missing. My question to you all is this...is there a web site that would show all of the 1955 models so I could begin a restoration and purchase correct color paint, decals, saddle and chain guard?
Thanks in advance!!!
