this is my 1949 schwinn.it had a truss setup on the front at first but i switched it out for the springer. i also flipped the yolk at the bottom of the fork to rake the front. i saw it on a bike here on the site and i loved the stance it gave.i wasnt sure how to do it so i asked the owner on his thread and he told me what i needed to do. thanks to him and this site in general for giving me an outlet to my obcession.hopefully you like the bike. i plan on buying a front light for it but thats about it.also there was a question as to wether or not a truss front fender would work on the springer.. some said nlo but i tried and it worked.. so the front fender is the original truss fender.
