I'm probably not adding anything to the conversation here, but the early Paramount I have that is shortly to be in Art's posession has Schwinn scripts on the cranks. Not that that means necessarily they made them...

Tam, I wish I could remember just where it was published, but many years ago I read an interview with the elder Mr. Schwinn, in which he stated that he felt women were better brazers than men. If I recall correctly, his explanation was that they had a more delicate touch with the torch. Fred Rednor - Arlington, Virginia, USA
