Hello - I am a first time poster so please be kind if I mess up. I have had this Elgin bike in my basement for over 20 years and in my parents for long before that. People who see it think it is pretty interesting and definitely old. I could use help on the following:

I bought this bicycle thinking its an Iver Johnson. While doing research I found out Iver Johnson always has a 6 number serial number on the tube near the seat, but there is no such serial number on this frame. It is also not the original paint, it has been painted black and an Iver Johnson...

A pretty solid piece that was done back in the day to replicate an Army bike--THIS IS NOT a real military bicycle. This is a Murray built bike with a solid Westfield hanging tank, Bendix front hub, Morrow rear hub, and what appear to be flat Lobdells. dropstand bolts are not correct. No tires...

Mine is bad. Quite bad.
It's useable until I get a replacement, but I'd really like a straighter/less cracked one.
Photo is of mine, I'd like one the same but in much better shape. Nice straight and solid, but paint not important.
Thanks in advance!
I just picked up an Elgin today. Repaint. Seat and bars don't appear to be original. Not sure about the rims - New Departure hubs. Serial # is F20671. Any insight on the year/model would be appreciated. Motorbike? Thanks
Look pretty straight. Still have good shine on them, some dark/worn chrome especially on one side, some gouges in the very center (stem covers it) and a rusty end that grip covers. Hard to find bars.
This style used on Sears bikes ~ Elgins, JCH, Spaceliners etc. I didn't take them off the bike...
Just picked up this bike, there is some really cool things going on. The yellow face clipper speedo has to be the best original I’ve ever seen. The Gun metal color is just cool
