I bought this bike last weekend. It is a 1946-47 Murray-Ohio Bicycle. It was sold as J.C Higgins based on the air-cooled hub and the brake arm. The headbadge is missing but it wont be hard to find a J.C Higgins badge. The bike has been repainted with what looks like house paint or spray paint. I cleaned most of it off with WD-40 and sand paper. Right now I'm in the process of cleaning the rest of the bike. There was a layer of grime all over the rear hub and the chain. The crank and sprocket need to be cleaned. I have some new pedals to put on there. I need to straighten out the chainguard and the fender braces and the basket. Then I'll put a new set of tubes and tires on it and it should be ready to go.
