    I thought that with a token boys bike in my collection maybe I could land a man :) Or with a little alteration, I could make this into an awesome girls bike!!! lol

    Whoever ends up with this.... I could use the seat if you're going to restore it. Tanks bri. PS; please do not turn into a girl's bike, we'll all die of a heart attack if you do....

    If I wasn't married I might take you up on that. Hope you want a guy with a thing for old bikes.

    So let's hear more of the story of where you found it and see some more photos of it??? That has to be the score of the century! I'd sell all of my 30+ collection for that 1. Well all except 3!! Hey Pickers, beat that!!!!

    Congrats on an incredible find!

    I know it's a BOYS bike, YUK! But, wanted to let you know that I will provide a loving home for it if you want to sell it to find a more suitable GIRLS bike! ;)

    showed your picture gallery to my wife. she said YEA! you go! great buch of bikes. it kind of would be a shame to add a boys bike to that room. maybe start another to put the "random" boys versions that you pick up? i would like to know just how many of those evinrudes are on the record now including this one. is it like twelve? or is it like fifty? congrats on getting the hen's tooth! without cavities i might add!

    Thanks :) A friend of mine from back East found it at an estate sale. He called and told me to there was "a neat old bike" at an auction just 20 miles from his house. Needless to say, I about died when I saw what the bike actually was! I can't wait to get it on some different tires, remove that awful basket and wipe off the decades old dust!!!
