So my loss your gain... Here is its description in Bobs own words >>>> Resurrection/restoration of an Indiana Craigslist'barn find' Henderson-badged last year Super Deluxe Schwinn Autocycle. I decided to bring this one back to original color, badge etc... Tough decision as by 1941 a myriad of nice two-tone combinations were offered but black and ivory is always pretty classy on these bikes.
Details: Full restoration of the bike shown in the last few pix. Automotive single stage paint, and all the chrome, nickel, and cadmium plating was done as factory prescribed. Front and rear "pat pending" Schwinn expander brakes were fully disassembled and replated and the free wheel was removed and reinstalled and serviced after chrome work was done. Lobdell 41 wheels with Torrington double butted spokes and the long nipples. B-1'deep' profile deluxe Mesinger leather saddle.
Original fender bomb ornament that was on the the bicycle when found, original Super Deluxe 1 year only tank. Mint restored Torrington 10 pedals with original NOS (not repro) blocks, Schwinn key in the locking spring fork with NOS locking mechanism. Mint Diamond chain and beautiful original Seiss lights that were not rechromed and look just great. The crossbar console is original, straps were rechromed, but inserts are nice enough originals that I left as-is. Bar has not been polished and looks great, has one of Georges illumination clips installed.
One button is original EA the other is a reproduction I believe from Jerry W long ago. Head was completely restored by Tim Brandt and looks as good or better than new with correct black number wheels and illumination notch/window specific for Schwinn Clipper Autocycle.NOS Never ridden G-3 holy grail white wall tires that look perfect! Gorgeous bike and I believe the rarest of the Schwinn prewar Deluxe Autocycles.... Not many of these known in existence. As most of you on here know... The greatest bicycles in the world were produced here in the US from 34' - 41'....
A lot of time and expense to build a bike like this. As found many of the components were missing, they were added and are as described as original aside from one of the bar buttons. Originally most 41's had Delta buttons but these are practically non existent. Erick 13,000.00 - 310 three eight 6 two four six 0 or msg here More pix on request.
