Bike Shaped Objects

Funky bikes and news
The right bike in the right place at the right time

elginThe picture says it all. If any bike ever deserved to be parked in a handicap spot it’s this one.

As usual I wish I was much closer so that I could afford to buy this old beauty. It should be a bit of easy work to make it a functioning rat rod, or even a bit more for a nice restoration.

The “streamlined” shape of the rear rack is absolute wonder. The safety chevrons on the rear fender, perfection.

The one disappointing thing is in the seller’s description. “We couldn’t figure out what model it was from or the era, so instead of fixing it up decided to just list it on ebay.” The poor thing. Just because it doesn’t have its papers in order doesn’t mean it isn’t worth anything. Hopefully the next owner will have a broader definition of bicycle cool.

See the full listing on eBay.
