The serial number is F133672 and is stamped on the bottom of the cranks housing mens prewar ELGIN beach cruiser bicycle with 26 wheels. This bike is awesome and has lots of potential.
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 EARLY Elgin bike I have had like this! Chrome chainguard super cool cruiser style seat, lucky 7 seat post, wide cruiser handlebars, Schwinn hand grips, full fenders, REALLY COOL rear carrier RACK, unique pedals, and more! This one has a rear fender clip mounted in place if you ever want to add a dropstand kickstand!
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 26x2.125. They are vintage tires and do hold air.
The front is a Carlisle Lightning Dart, the other is a vintage blackwall. The bike has 2 slightly different style painted rims front and rear with a cool ELGIN "air cooled" rear hub. PREWAR mens Elgin and Schwinn bikes are HOT and a great investment! Cool stuff made in USA that will only go UP in value! Bikes like this rarely come on the market for sale.
IF they do they are usually traded privately amongst collectors and never hit the open market. A great opportunity for you to own a cool prewar mens bike at a reasonable price! Sure beats starting with a bare frame and trying to build a bike from parts!
The bike is an original SINGLE SPEED with coaster brakes. (pedal slightly backwards to stop the bike) DIMENSIONS: The standover height is approx 31. The distance from the floor to the top of the seat post clamp is approx 27 1/2.
The distance from the center of the crank to the top of the seat post clamp is approx 18. The center of the handlebar stem to the center of the seat post is approx 21 1/2. 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 fact that this bike still wears most of its original paint!
It comes like you see it and has just the right amount of patina! (see pics, I took many and have nothing to hide) Restore it or enjoy it just like it is! The bike would need a total restoration from top to bottom for show. It has lots of age, patina, wear, etc.
Its such a great look these days! Both wheels have a slight wobble when you spin them. BIKES like this rarely come along.
A good investment that will only go up in value! This bike has SO MUCH POTENTIAL! This would really turn some heads in the back of an old truck at a car show or on cruise night! 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.
