    I'm not too sure on the serial numbers or website. For sure though only a 38/39 bicycle. I wouldn't say these ones are rare but yeah you wouldn't see one riding down the street most likely. I had one of these ratted out awhile back. Wasn't OG paint. Kinda crazy you picked up 2 though and from what I tell they look OG. Defiantly post pics when you get them all back together.

    Hi, can't view the pics for some reason but you mention an optional front brake...is this a hub/drum brake? :)
