    If there was ever a post war bike you wanted to add to your collection, this should be at the top of the list! 1954 JC Higgins 100, beautiful bike, turn signals (flash just like an automobile), tail light, brake light and headlight all WORKING. No one can be sure were the model name "100" came from.....were there only 100 produced, was it due to the fact it cost nearly $100 in 1954? There are several items/features specific to this bike and this bike only......tab for the generator, generator, cane-weave saddle, front and rear turn signals etc. etc....see the picture of the 1954 Sear Catalog ad, $5200 plus shipping.
    Thanks
    Todd

    --------some 20 years ago at Waseon Ohio Vintage motorcycle meet.... the Antique Motorcycle Supply Co out of
    Minnesota I believe? had a row of bikes in their space for sale....and a COMPLETE JC100 in good original shape
    it was 600.00 bux and I passsssssed. I knew it was a good bike at the time and worth more but failed to
    rise to the occasion.
