This is my dad's bicycle. Not sure how long he's had it, but I love it! Up until a week ago it was in very good condition. Last week there was a fire in his shop and it has damaged the bike some. I am looking for any info on it and maybe even a few sources to get replacment parts. I remember it having the white wall tires on it, so I am guessing at some point they wore out and dad replaced them. The only thing I have done thus far is wash it. Any help on age or where to look for the serial numbers would be greatly appreciated.

    Definitely early '50s, you might look under that seat cover, it might've saved the original seat. I looks like it was repainted at one time, I believe the front and rear fender tips would've been white (you can see some white on the frame above the tank). You can find the original color on the fork tube (you'll need to pull it apart though). Other than that you should post pics on the CABE (Classic and Antique Bicycle Exchange) forum, you'll get a lot more info there.
