Here is an original VINTAGE (mid-late 1940s I believe The serial number is 69430) men's JC HIGGINS balloon tire beach cruiser bicycle with 26" wheels. WOW! What a cool bike! With the insanely high price of gas (and the economy being bad) now is the time to ride a cool vintage bike!
*This bike is awesome! I bought from a very nice gentleman who was the ORIGINAL OWNER! He said he got the bike NEW in the late 1940s! Check out all the ORIGINAL PAPERWORK that I got with this bike! WOW! I have NEVER had a bike this old with so much original paperwork with it! This is truely amazing! The paperwork is very nice for being 60+ years old! It includes a parts list (shows all the parts of the bike and different model numbers of bikes) Shows springer fork, etc. The frame was $11 if you wanted to buy one! (Have you ever seen any documentaion like this?) It includes the original JC Higgins hanging envelope with the string, Sears/Elgin "Air Cooled' hub parts list, Bicycle General Instructions, (basically owners manual info) the ABCs of Bike riding pamphlet, (has some very cool pics) an attached Bike Safety League Postcard, and Kickstand instructions. WOW! YES the Serial Number on the envelope matches the Serial Number on the bike!
*I believe this bike to be basically all original parts from when it was new! (see pics and be your own judge)
*This bike has a cool mens cruiser style frame. awesome "Beehive" Springer fork with original paint and decals, (I like the stars on the Springer) cool chainguard, embossed Troxel cruiser style seat, (has some wear) wide cruiser handlebars, cool design rear carrier RACK, Skiptooth chain and sprockets, cool rear fender mounted reflector, and more! This bike originally came with a front fender. He said he removed it back in the 1950s cause it "rattled all the time" He was smart enough to keep the original fender mount SEISS headlight. (No lens or bulb. Now mounted to the handlebars) It even includes an accessory HORN which matches the cool Seiss headlight as a free BONUS! (untested)
*The tires are 26x2.125". They are vintage ALLSTATE CRUSADER tires and do hold air. (I believe the tires to be original for the bike) The bike has raised center rims front and rear with a JC HIGGINS rear hub!
*The bike is an original SINGLE SPEED with coaster brakes. (pedal slightly backwards to stop the bike)
*DIMENSIONS The stand over height is approx 31". The distance from the floor to the top of the seat post clamp is approx 29 1/2". The distance from the center of the crank to the top of the seat post clamp is approx 19 1/4". The center of the handlebar stem to the center of the seat post is approx 22". The bike will accommodate most any rider comfortably. The seat height is easy to adjust.
*NOTED FLAWS The bike would need a total resto for show or enjoy it in its current patina. The bike was obviously repainted long ago. The chrome is shiney but is not perfect show quality. Both wheels have a slight wobble when you spin them. The bike does not have a front fender. OVERALL one of the coolest bikes I have found in a while! I hope you enjoy it! This bike lived in a nice comfy beach house by a local lake! I hope you enjoy it! If you click on any of the pics they get very large to show lots of detail. Please take a look at all pics for exact condition and email with any questions before you offer.
*This appears to be a fairly nice original unmolested bicycle unless otherwise noted. A great bike to ride on relaxing days through the park or to the beach. Also would be a nice item to display in a shop, restaurant, rec room, sports bar, etc. Stand out from the crowd and be the envy of people who see you riding by. People will enjoy seeing you on your vintage bike! A great classic bike at a great price
*Why not ride a bike? You will live longer, feel better, and save $$$ vs of the insanely high cost of gasoline. If you are looking for a fun bike to ride and enjoy this may be it! A nice bike to cruise the beach or your local park! Priced way less than a dime store bike that wont be around 5 years from now, much less 30+ years like this one! Please give this bike a good home and DON'T MISS THIS OPPORTUNITY! Classic bikes are very cool because not everyone on the block has one! People love to see and talk about and ride these classic bikes! They are more popular now than ever before!
