Cool Vintage Skiptooth Cleveland Welding Tank Bike in Original weathered condition. Everything pretty much works, rides ok. Will need lube & probably bearings in the near future as it's been stored for decades.
Does pedal, brakes as it should and rides pretty good for the age though it is weathered but not corroded. Solid straight steel frame with weathered cosmetics.
The frame is black, the tins are red and when wet the Red shows a lot. Nice solid and straight steel Tank with fins.Neat vintage bubble headlight, doesn't work, sounds rusty but I couldn't verify. Solid straight fenders with original rear luggage rack that has nice reflector and looped supports that are broke off at the seat clamp. Good solid vintage springer saddle, obviously needs to be covered. Chrome on the bike is wearing, flaking & pitting. The big wide original beach cruiser bars show wearing but still good/Stem, good grips with weathering, same on the Crank. Original steel rims with New Departure hubs/coaster brake. Both spin pretty good for the age but like most, not perfect but just fine to ride as is. Both vintage tires are good to go with just under 50% tread. Overall a great bike to restore, show or ride rat patina style. Everything is there, original and ready to go. Pictures tell all, if not, please ask.

Keep In Mind: As with all vintage rides, they are not new bikes that ride as if off the showcase floor.
