    Finally found the rear drop stand for my 1937 Shelby Airflow and put it on today. Just need to install the Chain guard and find the fake tank that fits in the frame and the front and rear lights for it.Then it will be ready to take appart and restore.

    You know, I had a bike that looked a lot like that when I was about 10 yrs old. I didn't think much of it because it was in similar condition to that photo and I was just a kid.
    I haven't even thought about it in a long time. The pic is a reminder.

    I wonder what I had and what I could do with it if I had it now. A pity.

    Hope so.I just sold my 1936 Shelby airflow that was complete. to fund the 37 airflow. They are almost the exact same bike with one small difference how the rear drop stand mounts. 36 the stops are part of the stand and 37 they where built into the frame. They only did that for one year thats why I kept the 37.
