    20$ yard sale find today, seat, headbadge and chain are missing. It has painted rims with pin stripes, I'll post more pictures and details when I get home. The chrome chain guard is pretty cool. e3328a1a2a2d90f5f19d74e9f0bfe43f.jpg

    Thank you! Chain guard appears to be a universal replacement type with multiple mounting holes but it's pretty cool for what it is.

    From the look of the wheels it might of already been a garden bike at one time or another.

    While not valuable, this is unique. Murray had a strike in the mid 1950's, and Sears had to turn to a European manufacturer at the last minute to produce JC Higgins bicycles until the strike at Murray ended.

    Great information I had no idea he will be interested to know because he's my steward in the USW and we know all the things that happen during a strike!

    I've heard and repeated the strike story, but couldn't find any record of it in 1956. But I did find that they were building a new factory that year, which probably caused a gap in production as they moved machinery and stock from Ohio to TN.
