    Here is my 1942 Firestone Featherweight that I just about finished restoring. Need to secure the seat, finish restoring the head badge and put on the right grips. Original paint scheme but I added a Colsen chain guard and felt that the white with black trim looked best on it. $_57.jpg $_572.jpg 11219705_10205415328448495_6252105035987377610_n.jpg 12289739_10205415329008509_8489059891196340328_n.jpg 12294678_10205415329648525_3825421786539011045_n.jpg 12342708_10205415329248515_432990575836049271_n.jpg catolog.jpg

    I love this genre of bikes. Vastly underappreciated. I've got a 42 Roadmaster that's among my favorite bikes.

    They are great riding bikes. Luckily the Kenda S6 tires fit the rims so you don't have to worry about wearing out the original 26x1.375 tires.
