1947 Schwinn New World
A fine evening to ride. I took out this 1947 Schwinn New World. I upgraded this bike with a set of pristine, original wheels from a late 1940s Schwinn Continental - Schwinn dural hubs, stainless Schwinn rims, and double butted spokes.
I topped it off with a classic 1940s-50s French lighting set with an Ideal headlight and an amber headlight bulb.
It's a really comfortable bicycle and is a joy to ride.
