    Went to the Round Top antiques fair in Texas and found this third. Always liked the curved bar Elgins. Needs a lot of t.l.c. and a bunch of spokes. Might leave the bars, kinda like em. Nah, just kidding. The old boy I got it from already took all the green repaint off. Can't wait to get it back on the road. IMG_2449.JPG IMG_2450.JPG IMG_2451.JPG IMG_2452.JPG

    One of my favorites too, wish it was in a little better shape, but beggers can't be choosers.

    If it was in better shape you'd have to leave it pretty much alone, the rougher they are the more creative you can be...
