I live for the CABE
I got a New World saddle from @whizzer1 yesterday and cleaned it up today. Turned out perfect for my rat.

Test ride in the hood.

It's not nearly as plush as the Troxel long spring I had on it before, but it looks like an original New World.

Wore out three sets of tires already!
I just got a 1941 New World! Your build log is very inspirational and your detailed descriptions with photos are almost a manual for me to take mine from Rags to Riches. One good thing is I don't have any paint to strip off and it looks like all the original parts are there, right down to the Mesinger saddle you added at the end. The serial number info was very helpful. I thought mine was a 39 or 40 but with a serial # of H07717 mine is definitely a 1941. I did luck into a pair of NOS Uniroyal Tourist 26 x 1.375 tires. I've rebuilt a bunch of ND mod D hubs which are to me he gold standard in coaster hubs for ease of service and dependability. I'll flip the bars in their correct orientation. Not sure if they were original but they sure look cool flipped. Happy riding!
