    Might be picking up the Roadmaster little gem for winter build off bike ? Would like to find out if it is a older 50s CWC or a newer
    60s AMF model . Both companies built bikes for Roadmaster ? The seat and bars have been replaced with Schwinn parts .
    The second pick should be of the head badge


    Roadmaster Pilot Cruiser 20" - $50 (Ormond Beach)

    I'd guess 50's also. This bike is probably late 50's. Photo also from the CABE.

    History: AMF bought out the Cleveland Welding Co. in the early '50s. They stayed about the same until they moved production to Little Rock, AR in 1957. The BB's were stamped with the year from '52 - '56, i.e. "52Cw". They also bought Shelby, those bikes quickly became mixed w/CWC-AMF parts after 1953. -Adam
