  2. There is a solution for the broken Photobucket image issue on forums. If you use Firefox or Chrome, go into the Extensions (Chrome) or Add-Ons (Firefox) and search for "Photobucket Embed Fix" - it will have an icon that looks like a green piece from a jigsaw puzzle. Install the extension/add-on, restart your browser (Chrome) and you should be able to see all of the Photbucket images again.

    The dropouts don't look like Schwinn to me. Gary

    Yeah, this is my first post and my first RRB project. I was hoping to get an ID on it so I could have reference for later projects. Thanks for the info! Steve

    A Schwinn would have the rear frame stays narrow above the rear wheel arch. Very similar to this frame, which is actually a Shelby

    It could be a 1934 Westfield/Columbia with that D serial #. Most early W/C frames have a flared joint where the second tube meets the seatpost, like this.

    Snyder built and Westfield built Moto-Balloon frames do not look much different but yours appears to be a Snyder built frame. The upper rear fender bridge has more of an arch than the contemporary Westfield frame and I believe I can see the vestigial lugs on the crank hanger that locate the seat and down tubes. Those are a Snyder hallmark. The serial number is also more in the pattern (and content) of an early Snyder number than a Westfield number.
