I purchased this bike some 6 years ago along with the girls counter part. The girls bike was in really good shape so my intentions were to restore this bike. Like most of us I just kept making additional purchases instead. I have included pictures of the bike how I purchased it which was not in bad shape. The bike was taken down to the metal and primes with a black automotive enamel primer sprayed on with a small gravity feed spray gun. I just sold the female bike this week and now I am offering the male bike.

    This bike rides like a Cadillac the rear light is a new old stock Delta Light but the front torpedo light is a repo, both lights works. The horn has the brass button but I never tested it the guts however is fine. The Messenger seat was restored with new leather and painted black. I will not be bumping this to sell but I am opened to trade plus money for a higher end bike.

    $475 Shipped!!! Final reduction we keep if not sold by 12/15/17.

    No longer for sale!!!

    Nice looking bike but I think it is older than 1952. Probably around 1947.

    I'm thinking that's a little older than a 1952 also. Maybe a late 1946 or 47 model.

    Serial number on the bottom of the crank I'm assuming. What is the serial number?

    Oops, missed that on the original post somehow.

    I would agree with the guys above - '47 probably.

    I wasn't exactly sure on this one because this was one of those numbers that may have been use twice or lost data. I will change to late forties.

    Thanks

    That SN was used at least 5 times. Once or more in the pre war years, 1946-47, 1952, 1953 and 1957.
