    1939 Elgin.

    Took this one in on trade!
    Please look at pics, and read closely!
    At 1st, I thought this was 2 original paints that had been combined! Now, I'm thinking this is original paint that has either been partially treated and, or faded. The more red areas, (frame and tank), while looking original, shows the more orange color in worn spots. Cool, no matter what! When I got the bike it had some incorrect parts, that I have corrected. Mainly bars, truss rods and truss rod mounts. Wheels also appear to be original paint. Original light works as well. Tires are re-pop brick patterns. Seat needs recovered, the bike needs correct chain guard, and correct rear reflector. This is a good riding bike! Great as is, or killer easy restoration. $675.00 + shipping. Thanks, Chris. 620-820-9339
