Selling off some nice parts just in time for the Build Off. I picked up most of these in a package deal. All prices include shipping to lower 48.

JC Higgins tank - This is for the standard 26" ballooner Higgins/Murray frame. The tank has some pitting, but appears solid with no holes. The horn is attached, but the button is gone and battery holder is pretty rough. There is a switch mounted on the other side. I have no idea what it was for or if it is original. I think it will have awesome patina with some WD40, steel wool and a little cleaning. $90 shipped.







Two Springers. Headtube nuts seem to thread on with no issues



X53 springer - This is a 26" fork from a girl's bike, but the Murray built springers were the same for boy's and girls. Headtube measures roughly 6.5". It appears to be complete with original rockers, bolts, etc. It kind of looks like one of the chrome struts has a slight bend, but the fork is solid and should clean up fairly well with a wire brush. The only issue I know of is that the small screw that mounts the fender under the headtube has the head broken off. Looks like you could grab it with some pliers or drill it out. $125 shipped.





CWC boy's springer - Appears to be in nice shape and should clean up well. The fork is solid and not cracked where the fender screw mounts as many are. The head tube measures roughly 6.5". $130 shipped



60s style teal Persons boys seat - This is a super nice seat. I have to think it is NOS or if it was installed, it was ridden very little. The colors are super cool. It measures 9" as shown. $50 shipped.











60's style silver glitter seat with crash rail. The rail has some pitting from rust as shown, but should clean up a little better. I think it has a nice patina. Not too nice, but still a really cool seat. $40 shipped

Thanks guys!

Fish...if the other fork doesn't sell, I might jump in the BO11 :)

Still can't update the original thread, but the X53 and silver seat are SOLD.

Lowering price on the tank to $75
