Hey guys, it’s been a while! Sold off most of my bicycle collection but I was cruising the old marketplace and saw a familiar piece come up for sale. Scored this old Schwinn DX from @ifitsfreeitsforme

He seems to think it was a 1938 or 1939. I’ll search for the vin over the weekend. Either way super pumped to have this bike, I can remember it from when I was just a little kid on the forum. Definitely a quality rat rod bike! Thanks Ian!! Stole your pics too, they’re better than ones I can take haha

Great to see you on RRB again!!!! Great score!
How old are you nowadays? You and Tyler (DoubleNickel) aren't little kids anymore.

Yes sir, we both started with bikes at a young age. I’m 24 now. If I remember Tyler had like 2-4 years on me but I’m not too sure.

I'm having trouble accepting that this is a Schwinn... someone please educate me.

It looks like a double curved bar (rainbow, etc) roadster...but with a curved down tube.

It doesn't look like a pre-war DX, bars are too far apart.

will be interesting to see what year it is, and what model. Years ago someone on here told me it was a DX.
