Just Pedaling Along . . .

A J.C. Higgins Classic Cruiser.
When I ran into this classic J.C. Higgins at a "garage sale" at an antique store on the Southside of San Francisco Street in downtown Flagstaff.  The price tag read $250.  A Google search said that J.C. Higgins bikes were often sold at Sears Roebucks and Company in the 1950's and are quite a collector's item.  I wonder if the handlebars are orginal?  Anybody have any thoughts on that?

I believe those are the original handlebars. I had a Murray for a few years that was very similar and it had the big handlebars just like that.

Thanks Aaron; I believe you are correct. After spending more time researching on Google those seem to be consistent w/ other photos. They are very similar to the cruiser handlebars that I see on so many modern cruisers. They look very awkward. I think I'd probably replace those with something a bit lower and more swept back rather than the large, wide wing-like one on this bike.

My interest lies more in vintage lightweight racing bikes rather than flashy heavyweight cruisers, but for what it's worth, J.C. Higgins was a Sears house brand that was actually manufactured by a number of different companies. The handlebars appear to be original. To my eye every cruiser ever made is awkward and ugly. But taste is subjective. It's a big, wide world out there.
