Posted by: Mike TITLE: AGE / VALUE: Older Schwinn info wanted
I~ve got an old 26" Schwinn boys bike I am trying to date and identify. The serial number stamped on the bottom of the crank case is D21085. It has full fenders, teardrop headlight, rear rack w/light, 2 front bars, spring loaded seat, and the Schwinn Planes & Trains head badge. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

The Schwinn factory suffered a fire in 1948 and serial number records before August of 1948 were lost. However, in 8/48 they were using "D9xxxx" serial numbers, and I would be willing to guess that your bike was built early in 1948. The model appears to be a B607 Deluxe Autocycle that is missing the tank.
