Like the title says lol. Been looking for one for years with no luck. I'm looking for a prewar basket, the type that wraps around the stem. Condition doesn't have to be pretty as the bike is pretty ratty. I've got cash or trade. Just looking for a lead. Thanks!

There is a slight difference but the newer style one will fit. The pre-war has a flat lower crossbrace that is bolted to all four rear straps, and was set up at the factory (drilled) for the brace.

This one will go on a '39 tall frame (20") CT under repair presently
