Am selling my Higgins to put funds into other projects. Not original, ratted out a while back. Have it listed locally in Denver but figured I would try listing it here as well, see if anyone wants it. Hoping it doesnt get parted out, but know how it goes sometimes. Definitely a little rough around the edges, sanded half the tank at one point to start a custom paint job that never happened... Asking $250+shipping from 80220 PM for more details, have a link to local CL ad with more pics.

Was working on a newer brighter headlight system. Has halogen bulbs installed and the switch is there, needs to be wired and battery installed. Now that LEDs are out I gave up on the halogen and want to swap them out.

A great rider, and fun bike to have in the collection, just want to move onto other projects.

Van life is awesome, I miss it.
I know right! Spent a couple months last fall working in Moab at Moab Cyclery, living in the van. Now its a twice a year thing, going back in the end of Feb-Memorial Day, than back again next fall. Love that place!
