    Rescued this beauty from a chain of collectors with the intention of keeping it. Only moving it on because I found a black/red 46 and I am out of room. S2 wheels, AS pedals, Script seat post, all in amazing condition.
    Key locking springer, horn and light work great. Was sold to me as a complete original paint bike. Learned a lesson to look the bike over more carefully when I picked it up. Front fender wing had been touched up. Fortunately, the color was a good match. I was able to color sand the brush marks out and had Tom Clark refresh the striping. Overall, paint shows very well. Just got it back together and my plan is to put a tune on it and continue with more TLC. I will be riding it at the next Cyclone Coaster swap. Hopefully a local buyer can pick up there. Prefer not to ship, but will do so if need be with buyer paying only actual shipping cost. $1250 obo. I'm sure it would part out for more. May have buyer sign a pre-nup as to not part the bike. Thanks for looking. Tell a friend.

    Whoops, just noticed no front plate when I shot the pics. Has a very nice plane and train badge. Will update pics later this week.

    As promised. Updated photos. Bike has been tuned, rides great. New batteries. Light/Horn work great.
    Let’s find a good home for this one.
    See you at coaster swap.
