    What brand of saddle is that? From the looks of it I'd guess early 50's...It looks like a 49 stamped on the headtube. Maybe it is a 49.

    Its certainly the style of the early 50's later 40's.

    No idea, but that is one wicked cool old bike! Makes you wonder how that thing got to Indiana, the story it could probably tell!

    Wow, Thats really close to me. Never saw it on ebay, and I've been looking lately. Absolutely beautiful bike. Everything about it, the rack, fenders, dyno-hub. Like the "Hood ornament" too.

    they dont last long here. the enviroment destroys them . now most of our city/commuter bikes have them made in plastic ,it's terrible .
    but they do save the dresses from ending in the rear wheel

    Nice bike!

    My response would have been something along the lines of: "Does your bike have computer controlled suspension? Then shut your piehole, this baby is from the future!"

    Thats a very "pretty" bike!
    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    Man.....I LOVE that bike! I've got a set of fenders and the skirt guard to go with it kinda like those. Can't wait to find the right mixte frame to put them on for the GF. Geez....Even the chainguard is cool. Love it! Just absolutely love it!

    If you ever wanna let it go let me know!
