1941 Sears Elgin Collegiate Bicycle

More Views


This is a vintage Elgin Collegiate (what we believe) balloon tire bicycle from around 1941 (+- a year or two).  The paint on this bike is very nice.  Most of the details have survived - 4 stars on the fork with the white arrow, the details on the top, middle, down, and seat tubes have all survived fairly well.  The white has started to show more cream than pure dazzling white..  The main frame has very few scratches.  The fenders and chainguard have almost no scratches. No rust
The un-breakable stem (defender of the universe) has decent chrome and looks good.  Handlebars need some cleaning too, but good shape.  The grips are in excellent shape too.  Love the bell.

The front rack, chainguard, and rear rack all seem to be accessories added on at time of purchase. 

Overall, the bike is in great shape and only needs some polish and some 0000 steel wool to make it show worthy - ok, the rear tire doesn't hold air and the front one is ripped but nothings perfect, eh? 
Love the bell. 
The bike was made by Murray in Ohio.  Very neat smooth welds.  Sweet headbadge too.  Teal and orange.
