1939 Elgin Miss America

Actually Sears never called this bike the “Miss America”, it was merely referred to as the “Deluxe Equipped Elgin for Girls”. It got the nickname “Miss America” by collectors because the 1941 Spring and Summer catalog stated that the bike was the “Miss America of the bicycle world!”. This bicycle is one of the most radically styled ladies bicycles ever made, with it’s huge skirt guards and integrated chainguard and twin headlights.
