That's a nice bike. I could do without the road pedals, tho. It came from George Garner's shop, top Schwinn dealer and a good racer in '40/50's. George had three shops in the LA San Fernando Valley. When he moved to Northbrook, he was by the track, and his shop was one that Schwinn used as the school for mechanics and how to set up a Schwinn shop, displays, and service area. The bike has some use patina and that makes it more authentic from one point but then not so happy for virgin specimen collectors.
