Finally riding a big boys bike
Yes, Jetflow. What seems to be correct are the frame , the rear rack, and chainring/crank. I do believe the fork is from a sears bike, but an earlier Elgin model. As to what to do with the bike--make it a rider. I have a western flyer X-53 (same frame, essentially same fork as beehive) and it rides nice. The Beehive fork is not at all uncommon and perhaps a kind American can hook you up for smallish money. You are right about the tank--expensive and a bit hard to find(and then the matter of where you are). I would get rid of the front rack--it's inelegant.

About the fork, i do believe it could be a JCH fork.
Because on my restored JCH Ladies bike i did find the same fork.

Before i started the restoration on this bike, nobody could either tell me what fork this was.

The decals on the fork and tank, and painting of the frame i could see on my bike.
Were exactly the same as on the JCH Special De Luxe Bike.
So i do believe that the fork with the stars on it, could be a JCH Special De Luxe fork.
WillWork4Parts & all riders, what do you think about my theory?
Do you believe i could be right?

With a quick net search of Higgins Special Deluxe, I found some images that agree. None appear to be attached to that notched style frame though. These pics look like earlier bikes, earlier than the frame in question at least.

That is not the same fork as the OG Posters bike. His looks like an Elgin fork to me.
