Copied them and started building them.

Voila' ... they had a nuclear capable bomber.

The current 'Bear' bomber that's flying around N. Korea is a highly modified Tu-4 (swept wings, turboprops, etc.).

Soviets got their jet engines after the war, purchased 5 Rolls Royce engines that were then improved and used in the MiG 15

Everything from 1917 on was pretty much Western technology technical assistance concessions trading with the US, UK, Germany, Italy and other countries-interesting also that they wanted GE exhaust supercharger information that was denied(but they bought GE and Alco locomotives)

Some things were denied but virtually everything in heavy industry came from the west, as revealed by State Department decimal files.
American, UK and German engineers working in the USSR were often victims of contract disputes, bait and switch, and of course many patent and licensing infringements


After the war everyone benefitted from the stolen German Junkers and BMW jet engines, V2 rockets, etc.

Lost all the frame strength by removing the reinforcing bars and the seat post. Prolly not a Schwinn anywho, based on the head tube. Prolly a murray or worse, huffy.

Hope they had dental insurance.

Schwinn frames used a forged head tube that was arc-welded to the steal frame tubes back from the transition to make them stronger.

Other companies brazed their tubes to the head tube with butt joints.

All this vintage bike talk reminded me of a garage sale find a year or so ago. What do you think? Any ideas on how to proceed with chrome, parts etc?

Not a Schwinn like I originally thought it was at a distance, but still kinda cool.
