Very Rare original paint bike I bought this bike more than 20 years ago with the plan of restoring it, but I have been told by expert's that it's to rare to find one in original paint especially in this color combination Everything is original to the bike except the grips and tires, the grips are old stock with the Elgin logo that I bought 20 years ago and the tires were put on then as well they are USA made lightning darts The seat is very nice with the Elgin logo I cleaned the hubs front and back and they are very nice as well I cleaned a small area on the rims and they cleaned up nice I didn't want to try on the frame , body anywhere but I have seen professionals clean up original paint and they would be able to make it look 1000 times better. It has a lot of dings and scrapes the rack legs have bends as do the fender braces but there is not any heavy rust just light surface rust that could be cleaned up nicely.
I took the pedals off years ago and have been unable to find them. If it doesn't sell for the asking price I. I will be restoring it.The item "Elgin MISS AMERICA Pre War tank Bicycle bike vintage old antique 1930s art deco" is in sale since Wednesday, November 7, 2018.
