1923 Elgin Motorbike

This 1923 Elgin is just about as original as you can ever expect to find them. Nothing has been restored, only cleaned. Original paint, original Troxel leather saddle, original pedals, grips, etc. It still has the original (although petrified) factory “Justice Auto Bike” whitewall tires on wood rims! The battery canister still has the original “F.A. Smith, Rochester N.Y.” decal intact. Overall an excellent example of the type of bicycle Junior may have had back in the 1920’s. Not bad for an 80 year old bicycle!
