May have chance to purchase this bike. Any idea on value? This bike has been restored. They claim its a 1925 M Wards. Looks a lot like a Mead.

Really hard to tell from those pics but usually 26" balloon tires will rub especially the rear on a 28" frame. If you like it and plan on keeping then maybe. If you are looking at a flip I'd leave it alone. What are they asking for it? V/r Shawn

No price yet. I will look at it next week. If paint is nice up close, what you think?

As others have mentioned, wheels don't look right. They don't properly fill out the fenders, will probably rub the frame and besides, balloon tires didn't come out until 1933 so makes the bike look more like a 1930's bike than 1920's. To correct the wheel issue you are going to need to sink in a few hundred to put put proper rims/tires on the bike so be sure to factor that into the price you pay.
