Look Ma, No Hands!
Shipping: • I will pay for shipping using UPS standard ground. I will insure the shipment. • If the buyer wishes to use a different method of shipping, it will be at the buyer’s expense. I will work out shipping charges (at actual cost) with the buyer, but please notify me that you wish to use a different method of shipping when you submit an offer so I can determine the actual cost. • I will ship the crank/sprocket separate from the tank because of size difference. The rack can be included with either the tank or crank. • Shipment will originate from Chattanooga TN 37415. • Buyer will have 24 hours to inspect and decide either to keep or return the item(s). If the buyer returns the item(s), it is the buyer’s obligation to pay for shipping using the same packing (unless damaged), and method of shipping.
Rack for FIRESTONE AIRFLEX (Made by Huffman, c. 1940)

  • There are two pieces of the original three pieces: the rack itself and a housing for the tail lamp that slides underneath the rack.
  • The rack is missing the upper piece which attaches to bike frame.
  • The rack has been straightened; it is supposed to have a bend so that the tail lamp housing sits parallel.
  • The chrome trim is missing.
  • Original paint with an area of bare metal on the upper top, many scratches, and small areas missing, faded, and/or slight rust.
  • There are areas where the paint retains its original gloss.
  • The left front tab where the rack attaches to its mounting bracket is bent.

  • I will describe the parts as accurately as I can, but it is the buyer’s responsibility to determine the originality and condition of all items.
  • Because of my gratitude to CABE members for their help, advice, and kindness, I am listing these items on DEAL OR NO DEAL first with the hope I quicky receive a bid that I will accept; but if that doesn’t happen, I will withdraw and list on eBay. I’m hopeful that this will be a quick and successful sale! I do have a price in mind that I will accept; it’s pretty large <grin>
  • Each item is being sold separately, so if you want all, then bid strong on all.
  • I am new to CABE so please tell me if I need to correct my listing in any manner to follow CABE protocols, or to provide better descriptions.
  • Items are being offered “as is” with a 24 hour window to return. Let’s try to avoid that, please.
  • I will do my best to use the buyer’s preferred means of payment
  • I can accept PayPal, or cashier’s check (bank draft). I cannot accept credit or debt cards. If buyer wishes to pay by personal check or money order, please discuss this with me prior to submitting an offer.
  • I will travel up to 150 miles from Chattanooga to do a cash transaction at a prior arranged location; or if the buyer wishes to do the transaction is person.
  • My email is:
  • I will provide my cell/text number by email upon request.
  • If the bidder wants larger, or additional image(s) that exceed 20 MB, I will email those using (similar to Dropbox)
  • All items are in used condition and are in restorable condition. Other than the crank, the tank and rack retain most of their original paint.
  • These items were left behind by the original owner as trash when we purchased the house in 1988. We never cleaned under the cabinet’s storage area until last Saturday (April 30), when they were discovered.
Our good fortune can be your good fortune, too. I have learned that these parts are from a beautiful, rare, desirable, and valuable pre-war cruiser bicycle, and rarely come up for sale. I hope the buyer will enjoy his/her purchase and that it will bring joy to their life! We all need more joy in our collective lives, particularly in these times when so many live in desperation and fear.

Please bid responsibly, respectfully, and fearlessly!
