I have been trying to figure out what year this thing is and so far its somewhere between 1940 and 1950. The guy I bought it from said his brother handed it down to him in the early 1950's after his brother got a new bike. I plan to powder coat it black and then match the striping and accent colors(I took ALOT of pictures for reference). It also came with a skip-tooth sprocket set up that is in pretty good shape. The bike was more or less covered in grease so not much rust just alot of cleaning. The fake gas tank has a push button switch that turns on a lighting system.......unfortunately he didnt have the lighting set up, so maybe it will be a kill switch.
