NOW THIS IS COOL!

Here is an original 1930s VINTAGE (The previous owner said this bike was new in approx 1939. The serial number is F133672 and is stamped on the bottom of the cranks housing) mens prewar ELGIN beach cruiser bicycle with 26" wheels. This bike is awesome and has lots of potential. With the insanely high price of gas (and the economy being bad) now is the time to ride a cool vintage bike! Ive had a few JC Higgins "Color Flow" bikes over the years but this is the first EARLY Elgin bike I have had like this!

*This bike has a cool original design mens frame and forks with mostly original paint, (check out the unusual "curved" seat post tube) frame mounted TANK, Elgin head badge, original "skiptooth" cranks and sprocket, (chain was missing when I got the bike but I picked one up for it and am including it as a free bonus!) chrome chainguard) super cool cruiser style seat, lucky 7 seat post, wide cruiser handlebars, Schwinn hand grips, full fenders, REALLY COOL rear carrier RACK, unique pedals, and more! This one has a rear fender clip mounted in place if you ever want to add a dropstand kickstand! (has a sidestand currently. may be Miller?) I got this one just like you see it and think it is awesome!! They did not sell many of these when they were new! Consequently, they were rare back then and next to impossible to find today!

*The tires are 26x2.125". They are vintage tires and do hold air. The front is a Carlisle Lightning Dart, the other is a vintage blackwall. The bike has 2 slightly different style painted rims front and rear with a cool ELGIN "air cooled" rear hub.

*PREWAR mens Elgin and Schwinn bikes are HOT and a great investment! Cool stuff made in USA that will only go UP in value! Bikes like this rarely come on the market for sale. IF they do they are usually traded privately amongst collectors and never hit the open market. A great opportunity for you to own a cool prewar mens bike at a reasonable price! Sure beats starting with a bare frame and trying to build a bike from parts!

*The bike is an original SINGLE SPEED with coaster brakes. (pedal slightly backwards to stop the bike)

*DIMENSIONS: The standover height is approx 31". The distance from the floor to the top of the seat post clamp is approx 27 1/2". The distance from the center of the crank to the top of the seat post clamp is approx 18". The center of the handlebar stem to the center of the seat post is approx 21 1/2". The bike will accommodate most any rider comfortably. The seat height is easy to adjust.

*NOTED FLAWS I got this one just like you see it. I love the fact that this bike still wears most of its original paint! It comes like you see it and has just the right amount of patina! (see pics, I took many and have nothing to hide) Restore it or enjoy it just like it is! The bike would need a total restoration from top to bottom for show. It has lots of age, patina, wear, etc. Its such a great look these days! Would look cool in the back of an unrestored pickup truck at a car show or on cruise night! Both wheels have a slight wobble when you spin them. If you click on any of the pics they get very large to show lots of detail. Please take a look at all pics for exact condition and email with any questions before you offer.

BIKES like this rarely come along. A good investment that will only go up in value! This bike has SO MUCH POTENTIAL! This would really turn some heads in the back of an old truck at a car show or on cruise night!

*This appears to be a fairly nice original unmolested bicycle unless otherwise noted. A great bike to ride on relaxing days through the park or to the beach. Also would be a nice item to display in a shop, restaurant, rec room, sports bar, etc. Stand out from the crowd and be the envy of people who see you riding by. People will enjoy seeing you on your vintage bike! A great classic bike at a great price

*Why not ride a bike? You will live longer, feel better, and save $$$ vs of the insanely high cost of gasoline. If you are looking for a fun bike to ride and enjoy this may be it! A nice bike to cruise the beach or your local park! Priced way less than a dime store bike that wont be around 5 years from now, much less 30+ years like this one! Please give this bike a good home and DON'T MISS THIS OPPORTUNITY! Classic bikes are very cool because not everyone on the block has one! People love to see and talk about and ride these classic bikes! They are more popular now than ever before!

*This may be a great Birthday or other special holiday gift for someone! It is never too soon to think ahead and get someone something they may really like!! This starts reasonably with ABSOLUTELY so offer early and don't miss out! These are getting to be hard to find in any condition and to my knowledge, have not been reproduced.

*Sold as is simply because it is used. I try my very best to describe as accurately as possible and disclose anything I am aware of about the bike. PLEASE NOTE that many of the bikes I list have listed have been in long term storage and have not been regularly ridden in a while.(not a bad thing) They may need standard tuning, greasing, may have old tires, surface rust etc. I try to be as honest as possible and never want to disappoint anyone. If you have any questions regarding any specific things concerning the bike, please feel feel to ASK via emali before you offer. Keep in mind you are offerding on a 30+ year old bike that is not a brand new bicycle so it may need minor tuning, cables or cable adjustment, if tires are original, they may or may not have sidewall cracks, etc. I try to be as honest as I can and disclose anything I know about the bike. I want you to be happy with your new vintage purchase but please understand the bike may need some tlc to be road ready.

*By offerding please understand that you are purchasing a used bicycle that may or may not need tlc. If I notice an issue, I always try to note it in the sale listing. I want you to be excited about your new bike and hope you really enjoy your new vintage ride for years to come. Be sure to check out all pics and email with any questions you may have before you offer regarding condition, mechanical items, etc.

*NOTE REGARDING SHIPPING YOUR BIKE Your bike will be partially disassembled and shipped to you in a factory bicycle box. We try our best to package the bicycles carefully to avoid any unnecessary damage caused in transit however, scratches etc are possible to happen in transit which we have no control over once shipped. We try to package well so the bike arrives to you in the same condition as it left us.

*SHIPPING COSTS: Fed Ex, USPS, as well as UPS have recently raised their shipping rates due to the higher cost of fuel. Sorry for the slight increase in shipping costs.

*PLEASE NOTE, I WILL NO LONGER BE SHIPPING FULL SIZE BIKES OUTSIDE OF THE USA. This is due to the high cost of shipping and customs. If you are anywhere outside the lower 48 States including Alaska, Hawaii, or Puerto Rico contact me before you offer as shipping will cost more. Fed Ex just increased the rates. I can ship to AK, HI, or PR for approx $159.95. This is a 10+ day service and includes packing. This i the best deal I can get to ship to these locations. Please do not offer if this is unacceptable. I always try to keep things as reasonable as I can. If you have a friend or family member in the lower 48 states, I can ship to them for the amount stated in the listing. THANK YOU!
