Show of your bike by brand or model.
Here's some old pic's of a couple CWC projects I'm working on.. The blue one is a Hiawatha, 46' I believe. The yellow is a Roadmaster and I am unsure of the year, it's serial # is A37190 AC with the w inside of the C.
A37190 ACw would be 1950. Nice bikes!
The serial number is A22235 with a 550 stamped sideways to the serial number Here is the unusual looking dropout I was talking about.
The NBHAA said, "What you have there is a CWC/AMF frame made in 1955. There is no evidence from what we see here that it was a Hiawatha. And the little ears on the rear of the frame are nothing at all unusual for that time period. There were on thousands and thousands of bicycles they made."
So now I don't know what kind of bicycle I have....Dan
Yes, it says 55 Cw. The stamping isnt the greatest. Also I've never seen one with the 55 Cw sideways. It is a 1955 though
I'd love some help dating this CWC I just got in trade from Dogdart:
Serial Number: J78085 (W) <----W in a circle or in a C
There's a faint scratch bit that could possibly be an "A" near the CW
My newest build:
Wow that bike is cool...message me if u ever sell im in pittsburgh too!!
THRASHERS BICYCLE CLUB X PRAY 4 ME
Hello! After a little searching around the internet I found this forum and it seemed like the best place to ask. Hopefully someone can help me out!
I've been spending the week at my grandfather's house. He is in a home now and my family is getting ready to sell the house, so we've been going through everything and cleaning/sorting things out.
Now I haven't been in the garage in years. So today when we opened the doors, I saw this hung up on the wall with some rope and it immediately caught my eye. I'm not really a bicycle person. I know nothing about them and have never really had any interest but I couldn't stop checking this thing out. I asked my aunt about it and low and behold it was hers when she was a kid! She told me about how it was her favorite bike but how she remembered being mad when she first got it because it was handed down to her and her 2 brothers got brand new bikes! Funny that the other "new" bikes, that were also still there, were nothing compared to this in my opinion. I was so interested she told me that if I wanted it she'd let me take it.
Any help with figuring out what year and model I have here would be amazing. I saw previous in this thread people had been pretty helpful with serial numbers. I may know nothing about bikes but I know for anything... check for some numbers! Serial number is 312769. I will be back there tomorrow so if anyone needs other pics let me know! Thanks guys!
After pulling it off the wall I was disappointed to see there was no front badge. You could see there definitely used to be one, but it was gone. Oh wait what's this (found in the basket)...
Serial number is 312769.
I believe you are reading the serial number incorrectly, it is likely B12769 with perhaps an incompletely struck letter. That would be an appropriate serial number for what is an early 1937 Cleveland Welding built Roadmaster. It looks like the bike should clean up nicely and it is generally complete and original as it sits.
The special piece on this bike is the reasonably rare version of the standard 1935/37 rack with the built in tail light. Most of these racks only have a reflector without the battery light. The lighted rack is valuable on it's own but be especially careful of the glass lens, it is next to impossible to replace.
