    Ok I had to share. I picked this bike up last weekend. This is an original paint bike. It looks brand new. It has no wear. It is the single nicest original paint balloon tire bike I have ever seen.

    I concur :shock: The seat doesn't even look like a bum has graced it.

    The automobile style emblem on the rack makes it a '50 or '51, I believe.

    Wow That bike is out standing !What is the story behind why that bike was never used & stored so great ?
    I had girls Colorflow that had nice parts (Not as nice as yours ) but my frame paint wasnt great.
    So I made this ...

    Well there isn't realy a story. I bought it at ML. I saw a guy rolling it through the parking lot asked him how much and when he told me I could not get the money out of my pocket fast enough. :mrgreen:

    That's Pinkerton's. An old security firm.

    Rusty, you need to give that bike it's own bedroom in your house. :p Take it to every swap meet you can. You'll get best in show every time. Congrats on the find of the year. Gary

    Awesome Bike. Memory Lane never ceases to amaze.

    Right Place, right time with cash is the ticket there. I heard sombody got a smoking deal on a Nice Schwinn Hornet and Shelby pair too.

    Just shows that there are nice Original bikes still out there waiting to be found.

    Congrats.
