Pre war for sure. Sears used the Elgin before the war and then used the name J.C. Higgins after the war. A side note J.C. Higgins was a Sears employee and someone liked his signature so that is how they come up with the name. PS That tank will bring some good $$$ on Ebay so don`t tear it up.
I BUY VINTAGE PEZ DISPENSERS $$$$
Strausstown car show/flea market..held every Sept. This one was bought for $10.00. Guy I bought it from said it came out of his father in laws barn. Some people looked at me like I was nuts for buying it as I carried it out of there....
we were going to go there,but went to sinking spring flea market and then to the womelsdorf car show.nice bike for cheap,that is a real good$$$ tank on the bike.
I got the frame painted, used House of Krylon gloss black. I didn't want to make it too nice, I left in the small dings & imperfections in the frame. The seat post & hardware are off the original bike, they have the look I am after, not too crusty but not too nice. I put the original rear fender to the side and will probably bob the one I have pictured. I'm not sure if I will try to repair the original fork & truss rod or find something else. Maybe a springer will be used if I find one. My inspiration for this build is a Reading Standard board tracker. They were made in Reading, Pa.

you might be able to repair the truss by taking a piece of tubing, maybe a couple inches long,with the inside diameter the same as the outside diameter of the truss and cutting the ends off the trusses ( ) then slide the tubing over and flatten the bottom part and drill an axle hole...maybe...
