    Tough choice, but this is the last one I had out, only the tires and red grips that melted have been replaced! C2A0C4BF-8B1F-4093-81D4-18371E0BDDBA.jpeg 7087D4D5-7DFE-42BF-93CE-B8580FCB5A70.jpeg 62239B71-B5E7-483F-9FCA-8F35EF22D2D6.jpeg

    This is a '49 B-506 I got out of California several years ago - a bike that as of yet, has never been ridden. I disassembled it to clean it and put new grease in the moving parts in order to be able to ride it should the urge strike. It came from the Sloan family, who bought it new and with all the paperwork to support the story. One of my favorite pieces!

    The seat has a stain on it from something pooping on it in storage, and I had one done to replace it, but didn't ever put it on the bike. The seat was cleaned and the leather was preserved once the bike was back together. The tires are original and soft as a baby's butt, Also cleaned up once the bike was back together. The pedal blocks are perfect, having not ever been used. The fender (through the lens of the light) indicated to me that this bike was everything Brian told me. It matched the outside of the fender - other than the dust - perfectly, even in the photos from the posting where it was offered for sale..
    Everything on this is original - and gorgeous!

    Second up - '53 Traveler. Unsure how many owners on this one. The only "non-original piece on this is the seat was switched as the original one disintegrated before I got the bike, and was replaced with a later model lightweight seat.

    This one does get ridden periodically!

    Number 3 - '41 Cycle-Truck CT-2 - This one came to live with us a couple of years ago. Original paint, stripes, basket and such. The basket is now repaired (no loose wires) but is the original. This one has also been ridden, probably more than the Traveler!

    One day when I have a LOT of time, I may post the whole story... But...
    Here's the Reader's Digest condensed version - Brian Sloan's father and his brother were to be given new bicycles for Christmas in '49, the brother was in a wheelchair and this bike was ordered in his favorite colors and given to him as an inspiration for him to get out of the chair, which due to the disease, never happened. The brother passed on and the never ridden bike was retained by the parents, then handed down to the other brother and kept in the attic until a short while before the parents moved to a smaller house and decided as it was now going to be put into storage, the time had come to let it go. I have the original letter response from (and signed by) Frank W Schwinn stating that once the order was placed they would look into the special order color combination and that it should not be a problem. The bikes were given to the boys for Christmas in 1949.

    Unfortunately, at this point, due to multiple computer failures over the last 10 years, I can not locate the word document I wrote as I was speaking with Brian Sloan's father by phone. It had all the details in it.

    I am still looking for it - four different hard-drives and a boatload of word documents in that period of time!

    Thanks!
