    Haven’t posted anything in a long time, but still lurking. Picked this up last night at a local thrift store. After a little research, I believe the frame is a 1940 or 1941 Elgin. The OG seatpost is there,but that’s it. Schwinn cranks and sprocket, Wald forks, Araya 7x front wheel with an SR hub. Columbia chain guard? Everything else is generic. Not sure what I’ll do with it yet, but I couldn’t pass it up.[​IMG]
