Unbelievable condition. Original paint! In fact, I was told it is all original except for the seat leather which was professionally redone.
Could very well be the nicest one still in existence.
24" Single Tube tires


I've been told it can be ridden, although I have not tried. It does pedal freely and the spoon brake does work.
Gonna regret selling this one, but could use the space. Honestly wouldn't be upset if it doesn't sell.


I'll let the pictures do the rest of the talking.

$5K or best offer. (best offer as in, in the ballpark, not a lowball offer)
Have a (carbide?) light I was going to put on it, I'll throw it in for the right price. Don't have a pic but it's nice.
No shipping. Local pick up or I can deliver it to AA or MLC. Cash only.


PLEASE DO NOT REPLY TO THIS POST, SEND ME A PM IF INTERESTED. THANKS!

I had previously not measured anything, the tires say 24" on the sidewall.
I just went and measured and the actual outside wheel diameter is about 21.25"

With small wheels like that, is this a child's bike? My hard-tire safety from 1989 has 30" wheels, and my cushion tire has 28".

Cool bike. What leaf spring are you eluding to?
Saddle leaf spring. Not the best pic of it, but that was the one pic I have at the moment that shows it better than the rest. It is slightly visible in a few others.

Yes, I would assume it is.

Just in case anyone who is interested in this bike is interested in matching it up with an original pair of "St Nicholas MFG" pedals, I have a set that is on the table.

Wow! Quite a surviver!
Wonder if the St. Nicholas Bicycle Co. Had anything to do with the magazine by the same name that was published back then?

TOC 26" and 24" are YOUTH bikes, smaller were for children and are quite rare as cycles were for adult transportation. Only the well to do could afford cycles for children.
