Got this bike from the original owners grandson. The bike has a lot of miles, the og bought it new in 39 and rode it almost everyday until they died.


There is a broken fender bracket on the rear right side, one of the rack legs has a slight bend in it, should come out easily. The original rims are in sweet condition and the paint is nice.

$550.00, usd, shipped, via bike flights in the conus. Paypal, cash, cashiers check or money order. I will also travel part of the way to meet to get this to you, just not over 100 miles. The bike is in Sanger Texas. Let me know.

started cleaning it up some.

Rebuilt the Musselman High Flange front hub - it now has all new bearings in it, replaced the tires with a set of Kelly Springfield Prestige, circa early 50's, front is in excellent shape, rear is for show / display, there is a crack in the sidewall. It has U.S. Royal Airtite heavy duty tubes in it. Shot one can of oven cleaner on the yellow and it is now a thin coat of yellow, showing some of the blue and red original paint scheme. Inside the lobdell rims, is blue, under the fenders is blue, the bike has a ton of potential. Has a new speedchain on it. I have temporary pedals on it so I can ride it.

Here are some current photos of the bike.

I had the same kind of pin stripping on this bike, put it on when I lived in Huntington Beach.

When I brought it back to life, my bride said that they looked stupid and I should get rid of them, a heat gun is the key, warm them up and they come right off.

St. Patrick's Day is a huge event at my house, my grandmothers birthday, the matriarch who brought us over to the States. If she was still alive, it would be 127 years today.

Anyway, with all that is going on, lots of family here, I only had about a half hour to work on paint removal, so just stuck with the frame, there is treasure under that yellow gold. A lot of patience and elbow grease, and sweat will make this a beautiful bicycle again. I think the old guy who had it, must have gone insane, how else do you explain having such a beautiful bike and painting it yellow? Maybe he got tired of the red, white and blue glory after 60 years of riding it and decided it would look better. (it doesn't). Who knows, it is just sad that he had to paint it. Also, a little dawn dish soap and a 3m scotchbrite on the lobdell brought the original paint out quickly. more treasure.

finally, today the Kelly Springfield Prestige whitewall on the rear blew the sidewall out, so it is trash.

I will be mounting a set of Goodyear All Season black walls on it, the tires are riders and in good shape.
