Antique 1939 D.P. Harris Black Beauty Bicycle Women's Original
Antique 1939 D.P. Harris Black Beauty Bicycle Women's Original WITHOUT BASKET. This skip sprocket bicycle was purchased by my mother and her two sisters when she was 15. She's now 89 years old. It became mine when I was six (picture a skinny little six year old riding this big old balloon tire bike with 26 inch wheels!). This bike is all original except for the red handlebar grips, which I added in the 60's to replace the originals that disintegrated. I will remove the rear baskets. I added themin the 60's also,and I plan to usethem on another bike. The tires and tubes are at least 10 years old, and need to be replaced. The front fender has a crack and the chain guard is bentand dinged up(I was hard on the bike -I was long before it was cool!). It has a rear drop stand, the part on the rear fender that holds it up needs to be repaired but it still holds the stand up when riding.This bike was working fine when I put it in storage about8 years ago, believe it or not. Spokes are intact, seat is raggedy, but it is the original seat, with springs under it. There is surface rust, and paint is chipping and faded. The badge on the front reads D.P.H. Mfg Co New York, Black Beauty. The yellow sticker on thefront of the rear fender is a60's City of Flint bike license. Email me with any questions.If you want the original hi-res pics to zoom in on, I can email them to you. I will not ship this item as it's heavy, and I don't have a way to transport it. This is pick up only,or buyer may make arrangements to find a freight carrier or friend to pick it up and deliver.
