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?
