Took it for a ride and is fully functional with rear coaster brake for stopping. The bike also has a functional front brake.
The leather sttaps holding the basket to the handlebars are dry and are almost torn where they have sat folded in the buckle for years... I must warn that one side is ready to tear and may do so when I remove them again. These straps should be expected to be replaced. Also the basket has a metal holder on the bottom which is well in tact.The bottom of the basket is a thin wood which could use refurbishing as well. Please take a moment to check out my other items.
