Finally riding a big boys bike

At 66 years old, this icon is in amazing condition and extremely rare. To get it back on the road, the bike went through a reconditioning. What this means is the paint, pinstripes and decals are all ORIGINAL. All that was needed is a tuneup. The bearings were replaced and greased, the single-speed Bendix hub was rebuilt. The horn's batteries were replaced. The pedestal-style light was rebuilt with a NOS lens and upper-half; new batteries were installed. The frame and fenders were cleaned and lightly polished. The tires are the only non-NOS replacement parts. This bike is heavier than snot so don't expect to win any races. I'd estimate that the bike is 90% original, with the exception being the aforementioned items. The bike was test ridden and is fully functional.

"hipster approved", euuw gross.
That’s helpful.
My first sale was from a couple that wanted a vintage girls bike for their daughter. They mentioned they liked the hipster part. Whatever works.

Collecting bug hit. Now that it's cleaned, tuned-up and partially rebuilt I've decided not to sell it. How often do you come across an all-original well preserved Silver King? For now I'm going to ride and ogle it; I love the history. If anyone out there sees this and absolutely must have it, shoot me a PM. Otherwise, happy riding.
