This is a Wayne 50 that I bought from George Rook in Landergin, Texas 25 yrs. ago. George had a antique shop/cafe at the half way point on rt. 66. He cherry-picked the Texas Panhandle and Amarillo and had a lot of nice pieces. I would always stop and see him on my way to the Pate swap meet when it was out in the trees. I restored this 20 yrs. ago and it has held up well. Of course coming out of Texas, it was a nice solid pump to begin with. George passed away in 1999 and a few years later I was watching a Rt. 66 special on PBS one nite and here was George standing in his shop singing “Get your kicks, on Rt.66!”.

Restoration "it held up well". I'll say, that is very nice. That stuff cluttering the picture in the background is pretty good as well
Thanks for sharing .
