    $600....I don't know how a bike this clean is missing the tank!? (I posted before pictures to show this is an original bike and not parted together) I was gonna wait and find a tank and have a $1,000 bike but time is forcing me to sell. Completely disassembled, meticulously cleaned are re packed with park tool bicycle grease. This means no frozen nuts or bolts,all worked and oiled!! The front fender has a sheet metal screw holding it to the fork instead of a bolt and has a smaller new hole next to the og. I'm gonna say this is one of the first production jet flows with the older style rack riveted to the rear fender and the frame being stamped MOSU. Which I believe to be a 55' frame. Above average chrome for a Sears bike with the front fender being the poorest. I added the recovered seat or it would of been all post. Pedals are really nice and are translucent in the sun and almost have a glow to them. (They came with the bike just weren't on for before pics) Goodyear all weather tires are cracked up. I added the Schwinn grips handlebars and stem, didn't have any. Wheels are really nice and spin true, although some spokes on the rear wheel are loose and need to be broken free from the nipple to tighten. $600 for the bike. Around another $75 for shipping, carefully packed and shipped through bike flights.
