    I recently bought this bike but I soon realized I already have too many and dont have room for more. I dont know much about the bike but I know it belonged to a collector who passed away and his wife sold it to the guy I bought it from.

    The paint is in great shape throughout the bike, except the chainguard. If its a repaint, it is a well done old repaint. If it's original, its in awesome shape. If you guys can tell if its repainted or not, i would appreciate if you let me know. IMG_2679.JPG IMG_2680.JPG IMG_2681.JPG

    Reduced $750 + shipping through bikeflights. I am located in Atlanta, GA.

    I also have several other bikes that im planning to sell. 3 schwinn corvette's, 1 1949 autocycle in rough shape but all there including a drum brake, 1960 jaguar in great shape, a monark firestone imperial in rough condition, and two TOC's.

    Nice looking bike, but it looks like a repaint to me as well.

    Phattiremike was the first to pm so he gets first shot at it. We are arranging meeting up for him to check out the bike.

    Here are a few close-ups of the bike. As far as I can tell, it looks like original paint.

    It looks original to me, and $900 is a smoking deal.

    image.jpeg I don't know, this picture leads me to believe that it may be at least a partial repaint.

    Bike is still for sale. The bike was restored at some point in its life by someone who knew what he was doing.

    Price drop - 900 shipped within the US
