    The bike started it's life out as a 1950 J.C Higgins special line the most basic model J.C Higgins made at the time, it's still very much original J.C Higgins just with some extra Higgins parts added therefore a J.C Higgins custom.

    Alright I'm adding this in, it's a 1950s Monark built J.C Higgins. Seems to be all there, it's in AS IS condition. If you just want the girls bike I'll take $250 shipped.

    If you want them as a set I'll do $585 shipped

    I find it super cool and interesting that the new bike in the original ad does not have a chain guard!

    Lack of cash is only reason I have not jumped on this. May contact for possible trade interest.

    @The Renaissance Man @SILVERKINGPC @rrtbike

    Thanks guys I appreciate the compliments, I'm still sticking to my personal theory I think the American Pickers fad is over. This hobby might go back into obscurity, although at least where I'm located it's always been an obscure weird hobby with a very small niche market.

    People always marvel at me when I tell them how many hours, and cost it takes to bring these old girls back to life. If I was actually going to sell this bike for what I have into it (parts and man hours). It would probably be $800 to $1,000 bike.
    Who knew hand grinding/sanding a bike down to Bare steel would take so long :21::crazy:.

    Compare this bicycle to foreign aluminum junk with no style, coolness or uniqueness. No contest! It may be a more of a sign that our culture values less well-made things than this bike and seems uneducated in general about something like that.
