Awesome then that makes it even better than a Schwinn as far as I'm concerned, I have been looking for a or any bike made in 47 due to that was the year my mother was born, I lost her little over 2 years ago due to a doctors error, but that's what got me back in the bike shop only place to find peace at but a gift from above being a 47 , thanks to all that respondedIt's a Series 3, 1947. As RustyGold said, should have a little Cw over to the right of the number.
Do you think it would be useful to create a 'sticky thread' that explains the preferred way to do this? I've had to counsel a few posters recently about their less-than-ideal photographs.The pics are MUCH better. Just a tip. If you ever have to take pics of any bike to get info about it, ALWAYS take a 90 degree full drive side pic first and foremost.
I agree with Wildcat, try rto make adjustments to springer and get it to line up better. After that I would clean it up ,build it as is and start riding it. Once it is rolling you may want to leave it as is. Real good bones no matter what way you go with it. Good luckGreat score. I agree with wildcat that getting a CWC frame is better than getting a Schwinn frame just about any day of the week.
