    This 'bent I built about 3 years ago. Had intended to give it to one of my grandsons, but he was two inches too tall. Not much room for a motor without some serious surgery. As fast as it is now, I'd probably land in the hoosecow halfway through the first tank. Weighs 24 pounds.

    What a nice job you did. I had a Infinity that I put a Golden Eagle engine on which was a nice riding expierence. The main difference was uss. If I were to do it again I would perfer to have your setup.

    Like seeing your bike and nice craftmanship.

    Wow PaPa, thats going back a few decades. From the looks of the handle bars, I bet every time you hit a chuck hole, you bruised your forehead!

    Looks like a J.C Higgins with a springer. I wish we had open spaces out here, I hate blacktop. I had fields to play in when I was a kid, my children never had any just blacktop. Have fun, Dave.

    PS: 1949 was a good year.

    Hi Papa! Seems mom and dad spent some real money, cause it looks to me like they bought thier lil boy a 24" Schwinn DX maybe about a 1952 model??? And they spent the extra for the Knee-Action Springer! did it have the key? Wonder where that lil bike is today?
