    I found this bike in Tecumseh,KS complete except for the tank.

    Here's a picture of the same model with a tank. I guess it wouldn't need the graphics, but....

    Looks like my Vermillion red has faded. But from the catalog description, I know the headlamp should be Vermillion.

    Any leads would be greatly appreciated

    Thanks,
    Ed

    Addendum: Dr. Tankenstein said my pictures didn't show up. I've re-posted them below his comments. Continue to scroll.

    I'll try again. Trying to post pictures with this Android is a real PITA. Hopefully these will show up. Ed 20190926_214815.jpg

    The tank in the bottom picture is the style that I'm looking for.

    The repos have the holes for the horn button in the wrong place. On the JC Higgihs, the holes need to be on the top next to the frame. I've since found an original with a working horn and the correct paint and graphics. Even a blind squirrel finds a nut once in a while.

    Thanks for the help.
