This auction is for a Vintage 1941-42 BF Goodrich womens bicycle.  This bicycle was built by the Arnold Schwinn Co, sometime before 1947 and is almost a direct copy of the BA-307.  The rear facing dropouts, along with the fork trusses, place this bike prewar.

This bike was repainted in a metallic blue.  The chainguard was painted silver.  The seat cover and grips are also not original but are the blue metallic.

The fenders are original, and have the original holes in the rear fender for a string mesh type skirt guard.
The train style fender mounted headlight is in good shape, except for the gouge in the casing on the non-drive side.  Lens is intact.
