    My wife bought this for herself yesterday. She paid $60. Any clue of the year it is? She didn't get hurt on the price did she? IMG_20180517_201500.jpg

    Mid/late 60s. Awesome score for $60 in my opinion. That head light is cool as heck!!

    Awesome paint and striping. That headlight isnprobably worth half what she paid. Great score. The tank and peaked fenders got mw thinking CWC built. Not sure.

    I'm gonna date this one even earlier...mid-1950's based on the badge and wedge-style seatpost. Very nice specimen.

    I'm sticking with CWC built because of the bottom tank bar being horizontal and the peaked fenders.
    I don't think this is 50s though. The drops are wrong for 50s CWC and that rack just screams early 60s.

    Flip the bike and look for a serial # on the crank shell. If it's a CWC of the vintage I'm thinking, you'll probably find a date stamp there.
