1950s JC HIGGINS MENS TANK BIKE VINTAGE JET FLOW ELGIN SCHWINN RACK LIGHT DELUXE. This is one of the COOLEST mid 50s JC Higgins vintage bicycles I have EVER seen!
Here is an original 1950s VINTAGE (serial number is 248143) mens JC Higgins beach cruiser bicycle with 26 wheels. This was a near TOP OF THE LINE JC Higgins bicycle of the later 1950s! They are much harder to find than any Schwinn Jaguar Mark IV or Panther and are very cool and unique! I forget if this is a Jetflow or what the model name is. It is 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! Ive had a few JC Higgins "Color Flow" bikes over the years but this is the first bike I have ever had like this! There is just something about this bike....
The more you look at it, the more beautiful it gets! It has such a great 1950s look! This bike has a cool original design mens frame with original paint and decals, truss rod forks, frame mounted TANK, (non horn version) JC Higgins head badge, deluxe chainguard, cruiser style seat, (has splits and age) wide cruiser handlebars, red hand grips, full fenders, front fender mount Delta headlight, (untested no lens) cool RED pedals, 8 hole rear carrier RACK, and more! I got this one just like you see it and think it is awesome!! They did not sell many of these when they were new!
Consequently, they were rare back then and next to impossible to find today! The tires are 26x1.75.
They are slightly newer replacement wide whitewall tires and do hold air. The bike has chrome rims front and rear with a Bendix rear hub. The bike is an original SINGLE SPEED with coaster brakes. (pedal slightly backwards to stop the bike) DIMENSIONS: The standover height is approx 30 1/4.
The distance from the floor to the top of the seat post clamp is approx 28. The distance from the center of the crank to the top of the seat post clamp is approx 18 1/2.
The center of the handlebar stem to the center of the seat post is approx 21 3/4. The bike will accommodate most any rider comfortably. The seat height is easy to adjust.
NOTED FLAWS I got this one just like you see it. I love the paint scheme on this one! Paint is original but has obvious wear, chips, scratches, age, etc. The chrome is shiney but is not perfect show quality. Chrome shows lots of age and would need resto for show.
Both wheels have a slight wobble when you spin them. TO ME, there is just something about this bike that I REALLY like! I hope you do too!I had a hard time deciding to sell this one! Finding one of these is tough and I hope someone out there will appreciate it! This bike is LOADED with valuable parts. It could be the star center attraction of your collection! 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? 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! This may be a great Birthday or other special holiday gift for someone!
It is never too soon to think ahead and get someone something they may really like!! These are getting to be hard to find in any condition and to my knowledge, have not been reproduced. PLEASE NOTE that many of the bikes I list have listed have been in long term storage and have not been regularly ridden in a while. (not a bad thing) They may need standard tuning, greasing, may have old tires, surface rust etc.I try to be as honest as possible and never want to disappoint anyone. I try to be as honest as I can and disclose anything I know about the bike. I want you to be excited about your new bike and hope you really enjoy your new vintage ride for years to come.
We try to package well so the bike arrives to you in the same condition as it left us. Fed Ex just increased the rates. This is a 10+ day service and includes packing.
