Got it all together. Amazing all original bike. Even the tires and pedals/seat, fenderlight lens, grips. 99% sure it's a '48. In '49 the rocket came on the front fender. I bought a perfect patina rocket and put it on because...I dig rockets. I may upgrade the cheese grater on the rack too. I had an original set of acorn Monark nuts I added/speedo and cable. Horn works, light works, rides nice. The original seat top is almost mint.
I was going to put clay colored repro chain link tires on it, but decided (until they blow up) to keep the original rubber on and just cruise close to home. My good pal Bob ( bobcycles) in California was convinced this needed to be added to my collection, and kindly sold it to me. It came from another Cabe member known for his cool rides. Thanks Bob!!
