Yeah, this is a great bike! The condition is very nice, all orig. It appears that it wasn't ridden much as all the bearing surfaces are in excellent condition.

Here's another ladies bike in excellent original condition. A bit older: 1938 Elgin (Westfield-built), tires and grips are new, another bike that rides very nicely. Hardly any wear to the bearing surfaces, uncommon Pearl and Sapphire Blue color combination.
The missus says it is easier to ride than her Schwinn Cruiser Seven:

Great bike! A friend got a 1950s Crescent recently. Similar to yours in style, just a bit older
We overhauled everything and man does it ride nicely.

My daughter's bike. Late 70s Huffy. Came with a surprisingly nice Suntour 2x5 drivetrain and thumb shifters. She's logged quite a few miles since we've had it.
