    I think the front fork is a Schwinn springer, or a clone. Crank looks like my Roadside Cruiser.. Not sure I'd ride 2 up on that though...but a very cool bike!

    serial number matches a 1952 or 1957 chicago schwinn. the rear seat looks to be the one they would have used in 1957. based on the amount of visible frame modifications I'm betting it's a '57 with a couple mods that aren't quite as obvious. looks like the whole thing was hacked apart and welded back together at some point.
