Hi Dave

I think that would be great if you were to publish photos of my JC Higgins bike.

I was raised in Southern Ca. and lived a quarter mile from the beach and spent most of my time surfing and riding bicycles . Bicycles have always been a big part of my life and now at 60 years old and having a 16 year old daughter and living in Co. Springs Co. my quest for bicycles has but increased. I presently own over 20 bicycles and trying my best to restore as many of them as possible. My hunt for bikes and parts is a constant thing and something I would love to share.

My 1950 J. C. Higgins Color Flow took a long time of searching, organizing and actually a lot of luck to be able to find all the original parts. And about parts theirs something i`m still trying to find out ? On every part on the bike including bolts and washers theirs a stamp 33-111 or 111-33 not sure which at the moment but

would you know anything about this stamp ?

I also have several photos of other types of bicycles which wait their turn for restore if you would like .

Old bicycles can be repaired to the point they ride great, but most old bicycles when found or purchased, need a lot of work and a lot of parts to make them work properly again. The following is a brief overview of old bicycle parts, and a brief synopsis of how to care for, or repair, these parts:

Thanks Much, Dave Brown
