    This bike is complete and rides great. The bike needs paint. The rack is not a tail light model. The head light is in like new guts and the tank horn is also in very good condition and should work. They are untested. The bike has a pair of Goodyear Double Eagle in nice condition.I have the correct lower front fender strut. The curved one like the back and will be sent also. I have a set of NOS bars to go with it, I think they are repro. The pedals are repro. The I would like $2500 shipped on this bike.

    Some do some did not. In the Colson book it shows both models. The one you are referring to is the deluxe model

    I thought the "double eagle" was the deluxe. Therefore had the cushion.

    Yes the badge is repro. This is the only one of these I have ever seen. The bike with the cushioner is called Double Eagle Deluxe and without the cushioner just Double Eagle Clipper. On pages 82 an 83 in the Colson book.

    Kirk is correct. The cushioner model is a Double Eagle Deluxe and has a different head badge. Same thing with the "Bull Nose". The regular bike was called a Firestone Cruiser and the cushioner model was a Firestone Super Cruiser. V/r Shawn
