Riding a '38 Autocycle Deluxe
Yeah, I bought not long after it listed. I take a few minutes each day to browse the various vintage bike and auction sites just to see what is popping up. The tall frame, condition, and the fact that it had some of the old-style features sold it for me. I paid what I would think of as "retail" for the project. It wasn't a steal, but it was in such nice shape that I just bit the bullet and went ahead. The three speeds turn up with a lot of wear or replaced stuff on them usually because they were a utilitarian thing in those days. The stainless fenders in particular tend to turn up scratched and dented all to hell. This one is really, really nice, and pretty complete. It was missing the rear reflector and housing, but I had one of each in my stash to use.
