What I'm getting is with the H serial number it's a 1930? And with the 28" wheels would this be a junior roadster? Any info would be great and very appreciative! Please let me know if someone could give me any info. Thanks guys!

    I think your correct. Lukky you have the original pedals. They are difficult to come by and pricey when you do find them. It looks like you just need a chain and some tires and you are ready to ride.

    Thank you MR Columbia. I did hear the pedals were the hard part to find! Do you think the seat is OG? I've never seen a chassis like it! And thank you again man!

    I do think the seat is correct. I have the same one on some of my bikes.

    Not really. I have a couple and see them on eBay all the time. They go for about $70 with the mounting bracket intact.

    I've seen lots of nice 26" single tube tires for sale over the years.

    25" I'll have to double check. But there taller than regular balloon tire wheels. So that's where I'm getting the 28". I wish they were 26s would make it a whole lot easier!
