Vintage Basketball Rim, Barn Basketball Hoop, Barnside Basketball, Hoosiers, Barnyard Hoops, Farmyard Basketball Rim

I am in Indiana, home of the movie 'Hoosiers'. And I have seen many similar very old basketball hoops mounted on the side of a barn, but rarely have I found a farmer that would climb up with tools, and remove the old hoop and sell it to me! In fact he had 3 of them, of which I will eventually get the other 2 listed, but not yet.

All of us in Indiana love basketball, especially high school or college, and though I am a Purdue Boilermaker fan, (remember a guy named Rick Mount?), the movie Hoosiers made our state's love of basketball famous.

So, fresh off the front of a barn in Lebanon Indiana (home of Rick Mount, by the way), is a regulation sized basketball hoop or rim. All 4 original mounting bolts are present, all of the hanging hooks for the netting (netting not included) are solid and secure, this one is a classic. Mount it on your barn, house or garage, or even on a pole, and your house will become very popular for hoopsters of all ages.

This hoop has seen many games, with the red paint being very chipped, some significant areas of rust, a wire brush would probably work wonders. This is a classic.
