    Have an original Bowden bicycle that was won in the 1960 Chicago fair and was bought off of the original owners relative. Bicycle is all original right down to the tires and penciled in number of 521 in 2 places behind chain ring except for the rear taillights and rear carrier but are very nice reproductions. All the lights and horn work and serious inquiries only please and yes this is the real deal and not too many known to exist.

    They were missing when I purchased the bicycle but the rear rack screws were still present so I presume they didn't like it on the bike and thus went missing over the years and the wiring was exposed in the back taillight area and I also presume that they were removed because they were not working and tossed.
