Attention! Do not bid or buy the Airborne Cushman frame on ebay! It is not a real wwii frame. It does not have a serial on the right rear of the frame. The frame is not right either. Trust me on this fellas. I am talking with a few subject matter experts and they have asked me to put the word out about it. It is a cobbled together frame made from a model 50 series frame, the horizontal ribs are way too wide. The rear frame portion is wider than the rest of the frame. Do not get burned on this.

Can you describe it a little better? Was it just a frame?

It was just the stripped frame. No forks, nothing on it except a seat.

These are the pictures I have on file of it. I was negotiating with him, but I left it when I found out it wasn't ok.

See how wide the horizontal ribs are? They were fabricated Joseph and Andrew both called this one bad.
