First, I'm hoping Randy didn't pay anywhere near $5k for this bike. Secondly, the other bike wasn't to much better off before the previous owner gave it the shake and bake rattle can resto to hide some major flaws. Lastly, the '38 BBs just don't command the respect or $$ of the '35-7 BBs. Its actually a totally different bike with, essentially, a Robin frame with a detachable tank unlike the original BBs. That said the '38s are much more scarce than the earlier BBs. As everyone knows though rare doesn't necessarily = $$$. Restored or decent originals though can get decent money from those that appreciate them. V/r Shawn
No where near. And if I decide to restore this bike it will be done by a local professional.

I hope you got a kiss on the cheek and $20.00 left on the nightstand!
Man, I'd have had trouble letting someone drop that off for free!

Nice! How was it discovered? It looks like it was buried in the ground for part of its life. Congrats on the find!
Been putting out some feelers. This guy responded with several pics including the bb. I couldn't believe it. Several days went by. Guy was using it for a DVD stand. Drug the bike home out of a ditch and loved the look. Bicycle lover not bicycle collector.
Didn't want to sell it and I couldn't leave without it. Made him a solid offer and told him I would get it back on the road.

Awesome bike! Please post more photos of the tank. I need to make one eventually, and am trying to get as many photos and measurements as I can. Congrats on the find!
