Cycle Truck (1939-55) The Cycle Truck bicycle was built with a smaller front wheel during WWII. Designed for use on military bases, it allowed a larger front basket. Furthermore, the frame was designed in such a way as to minimize the weight placed on the front fork.The front basket is missing, the tires are flat and the handle bar grips are missing. Everything is original, very little rust. Serial Number on bottom is very clear and shows it is pre 1948. In 1948 a fire destroyed all Schwinn records so t is no way to determine exact age.
