FOR SALE:   Male JC Higgins, 1957 posted by: Ted Croswell, Sr. on 10/18/2002 at 7:46:30 PM
I have a male JC Higgins bicycle, 1957 in very good condition. Does not have a front fender head light. I bought in 1958 from original owner. Over the years I have mopped on paint to protect and keep from rusting. Does not have any dents or bad rust spots. The seat has one area on the edge, approximately 1/2 inch by 1 inch that the material is off down to the metal. Get all the old paint off and one will have a great bike. It is a collectors item. Will take $450.00, firm. One like it refinished 5 yrs ago sold for $1,200 dollars.

I am in the process of moving 1200 miles to another state and and I do not have a ditital camera to take pics, to send. It would be the 1st of the year before I would take any action on it. If interested in waiting, send e-mail address and will contact you in order which received.
