just picked this up. 13 hours on the road yesterday. bolted the bars and pedals on this morning and gave it a ride-really nice rider. obviously some parts will be replaced and bike will get meticulous clean-up. bike purchased in 1938 from Chicago cycle supply-Lincoln badged. a few personal touches to bike-will detail later. purchased by long time friend from original owner-took 30 years to get it! worth the wait! check out the cool picture of original owner on the bike in 1938-dressed for the cold Chicago weather-wool outfit-matched coat and knickers! watch for upgrades/clean-up/changes!

I don’t think that little guy can even touch the ground or make a full rotation on the cranks. Lol. Beautiful bike! Some things are worth the wait.

Super Sweet! I wonder if a paintless dent repair person could fix the truss rod tank dings

I can work them out about to 95% but you can see a trace-also the paint takes a hit when you start those repairs it seems. some guys just leave them....part of the history of the bike!

BRAVO , You have great patience. Dat was a LONG WAIT ! At least tell me He let you ride it during that time . Darn good score ! I dig the original owners pic. He Was SPOILED ! He needed to grow into that . At least his parents had a good eye .................and probably deep pockets as well ! :p:p:p

the owner picture is awesome-8.5x11 size too. I don't know how he rode that bike with short legs-maybe had a growing spurt! he was financially connected-spoiled brat I figure. bike itself had small treasure on it-a bullet as a fob on the key lock and a buck rogers tag on the seat and still had the miller stand 'grease' instructions under the bolt. he collected deusenberg cars later in life! even bought my neighbors deusenberg I think-knew all about it-small circle of those collectors.
