    $650.00 shipped

    This bicycle is all original, except for the "house paint" over the original cobalt blue, that was done years ago by some artist....
    They did preserve the original "Iver Johnson" script though on the down tube as shown.
    I did a strip to that cobalt blue on a very small section at the rear stays with a (Xylol) chemical that melts the tan paint away in seconds as seen in one pic.
    There is still the original Iver script on both the seat stem and bars stem.
    The only thing missing is the original drop stand and clip. The original rear axle / drop stand nuts are present.
    Note: The interesting cast aluminum handlebar grips. I've never seen those before......

    ( An interesting restoration project for someone )

    In the last photo is an example, similar ( not mine ) of what that "Iver cobalt blue and white darts" might look like under that very thin tan overpaint on my bike.

    Absolutely beautiful bike, truly is, I would take it right away except it is not a tall frame. But it is beautiful all the less.
