| Directed to Gordon. I have looked all over my bike and found no serial numbers.By chance would it be inside the sprocket barrel? I remember that I didnt even see it when I had it stripped and ready for fresh paint.I looked on my other bikes and found those right off the bat. Would there be a serial number on the sprocket that might identify the year?I know this is something that I could find out on my own, but like I said I have bad luck with tools slipping and scraching paint.I got looking at the pics of the good year bike and found that the fork on that favors the old schwinns.Its amazing how things made by the same company differs on the smaller parts.Yesterday I added a wire rack from a newer bike but it doesnt look right. I guess that I,m anxiouse to see a fender with light on the front. Would there be some type of mounting tabs left for a tank if it had them or are they removeable? How exactly do they mount on the bike? What about the front badge? Can they be purchased? The front forks on the 54 and 55 are those unique for that year? I just want to double check, the seat is a black and white Mesinger seat is that correct for that year? Did they use hunt wilde handle grips? Is that sprocket also common on all bikes made by cleveland. I find that people like a fadded paint job. Was that a common paint scheme, or like those in the pics? Wich is a more correct restoration? Well I will go for now more later. Thank you for any help given. Michael myers.|

| To Gordon, Thank you for your reply.If it wasnt for your help I would have racked my brain trying to find things out.|
I never realized goodyear had the same maker as columbia.
As you put it, if I had a top end model it would have the certain parts. I could in theory make it a top end model.
I guess that is part of building a bike, making it my own.
I cheecked the data base and found the bikes you mentioned.
Beautiful isnt the only word for it. I really enjoy biking, and like I said in my earlier postings I,ve made 2 other bikes a montgomery ward 26 inch womens and an AMF roadmaster
womens 26 inch, for the 2 loving women in my life my mom and my fiance.They found a new love in biking also.They fell in love with the fade and white walls. Well Gordon I half to go for now. Will wright more later,when I have more questions.I,ll make sure that I direct them toward you. thank you thank you thank you sincerely Michael myers
