    Here is my friends bike that he painted and got riding recently. We would like to know what kind bike it is. I'm guessing it's from the late 40's, idk?? Any help ID-ing the bike would be great!

    I'm thinking it's a Shelby frame with a Snyder (Rollfast) springer fork. -Adam

    And Shelby made a lot of Hiawathas, though they shifted to CWC late 40s. -Adam
