    Hey Welcome to the show...

    Great detail on that bike. Wish my neighborhood had curbs like yours

    I think that bike is more scarce than any other brand 1961 Lightweight 3-speed, especially in that condition.

    Keep up the quest.

    Nice bike. I just bought a girls bike like it but not nearly so nice.

    Are those original decals? Does anyone know a source for replacements? The ones on my bike are very weathered and flaking off.

    Oh well. Thanks. I got the bike stripped down last night. It looks like it's going to be a bit more work than expected. Both rims are trashed. The rear hub was dry and feels a bit loose. The front was so rusted that I almost broke the bolt holding the bars in taking it apart. It'll still cost less than $100 to get into good shape again but cosmetically it will never look new again. Oh well -- it'll be nice to have a bike for guests and for short rides around town. And in this town it'll still get attention

    Thanks for the reply

    Welcome MM, you'll find many of us RRB members here also! Except sometimes with slightly different handles (aka Rustinkerer). "Nice bike. I just bought a girls bike like it but not nearly so nice.

    As far as I've seen, the only JCH decals repopped were for the deluxe balloon Colorflow series. But some printing places can make decals if you can scan a clear image of one.
