    HERE WE GO: A very rare, documented, 1958 model was discovered and is currently owned by Buck Hughes. Heck of a picker - GREAT find buddy!!

    SERIAL: 8H549478

    Other than missing the rack, a pedal, and tank w/ radio, it seems to retain all of it's correct parts and is in good condition. He could be made complete somewhat easily, since 1955, and 1957-58 Radiobikes all had the same rack and tank assemblies.

    Just surfaced on eBay, a mostly complete tank. Correct for 1955, and 1957-58 models. It is unknown what serial number it is from.

    The seller is a CABE member @Mark Mattei you may want to ask him if he has the frame? V/r Shawn

    Wouldn’t be selling the tank if I had the frame or bike. Mark.
