1965 Sears & 1964 J.C. Higgins (Puch)

I purchased a Sears (Puch) Ted Williams bicycle in the summer of 1965 but sold it in 1986. Loved that bike! I've since purchased a circa 1964 J.C. Higgins (Sears) Puch and circa 1965 Sears (Puch) via Craigslist and Ebay respectively. High quality and both originally came with Campagnolo and Weinmann components. Sadly, the Sears Campy Record derailleurs were parted out before my purchase!
