Found out it a Roadmaster 1940-41, and it is a motor bike I road one like it back in the 50's. Generator is cut out so the armature runs against the tire, they where fun about 20mph or so, 5/8hp Briggs washing machine motor. I am going to get it going this winter....Curt

Thanks for the picture, same fork and bars, will have to see if I can fix the fork to useable condition. You are right about the clutch, if I remember right it over centers to stay up, also has screen door spring to pull the generator down.........Curt

Amazing 80 year old bike and I got the pedal off and the crank apart. Bike serial number is H64155, Would that be June of 41? 4 months older then me, LOL...........Curt
CWC didn't have a month code, the letter dictates the year and range of months it was produced.

With the H it is either ~'41 or '46. Since it doesn't have dropstand tabs, that eliminates '41. So, it's a '46.

The tabs at the bottom of the dropout were pre-war...
