found this on my trip to oklahoma. it was a complete bike
but had newer parts. i stripped the junk, and brought home
the rest. pretty dang old. its a packard-schwinn, and im guessing
prewar.

yesterday greg and i were about to cut it up and i had to think
real hard about it. i decided to hang it up on the garage wall at
the end of the day. planning on making a mens frame cruiser i think.
you know with the big fat yellow/creme tires, two tone 40's type paint
job etc. etc. etc. bought another occ bike for the front end yesterday
too. but for my next chop. gotta keep up with greg lol... Basketball
gave greg and andrea the tank for her next project.
if i decide to get rid of it ill give you 1st shot. no pun intended...
Suspect

Kool man. Don't know if you knew or not but AJ has been looking for a tank like that for awhile. I also have a 1941 Scwinn frame that will fit that tank. That's an early 40's tank. I have multiple 50's tanks for the girls bikes. There was actually 3 different tanks for the girls bikes that schwinn made. The first is yours with the square front end, the next has a semi round front end which is 1946-48, the next is a totally round front 1949-mid 50's, which I have about 3 or 4 of. there is also 2 variations of that tank. One of the tanks has a totally smooth front, the other has a raised lip that surounds the horn area which i think is a deluxe tank? Anyway, I have about two of each of the 50's styled later tanks.

no, i didnt know a.j was looking. well, gregs got the tank,
i figured the bike was early. your the first person to square
it away as being that early. i figured it was very early 40's.
the more greg and i looked at it the more we realized that
frame would take alot of work to make into a guys frame.
we'll see. to cut it up or not???? Suspect
