I have been commissioned to sell this bike. The owner has passed away and the only thing we know about it is from a letter we found stating that it was very rare, that an airplane manufacturer built it as a promotion in the 30’s. Any information would be appreciated. Thanks,Peggy

MISC:   Larz Anderson Bicycle Show & Swap Meet posted by: Peter Naiman on 6/28/2008 at 9:18:16 AM
As posted before the Larz Anderson Bicycle Show & Swap is coming again this year on Sunday July 20th on the grounds of the Larz Anderson Automobile Museum, 15 Newton st., Brookline, MA 02445.

Entry charge for adults is $10, for children $5.00. This covers entry into the show with bikes etc. There is no additional charge for entering bikes into the show or swap meet spaces.

The Museum has a new staff on board headed by Tyler Burns, Assistant Director, as of a few months ago, and for everyone involved in the show it brings a breath of fresh air to the Museum and our show.

Friend Maurice Bresnahan, and Co-Chairman of the show & Tyler Burns of the Museum have worked out an agreement so we can now bring back the swap meet this year, so we can now revive the show to its original format. There will be no charge for the swap meet. We ask that everyone try and pre-register for the swap, although folks can show up the morning of the show to register. Set up time for the swap starts at 8:00AM.

We have about twenty table that the Museum has on hand, but once those are gone we will be renting the tables from a local supplier. There will be a $10.00 per table charge to rent a table once the initial supply of the Museum are all signed up for.

Set up time for the Concourse or bike show will begin at 9:00AM, but for those attending the Vintage Ride, staff will be on hand to register the bikes by 8:30. Pre-registration is not necessary for the Concourse, but we would like to know what you are bringing so we can publish it as a preview to the list.

As we do every year, voting for the Concourse will be by "Popular Choice" voting of everyone attending as ours is not a Concourse de Elegance". A list of awards available will be posted in a few days.

VCC Member Chris Barbour will be leading a Vintage Ride departing the Museum grounds promptly at 9:00AM. Please be prepared uneven city pavement and crushed-stone carriage paths in the city’s 19th Century parks… 28mm tires minimum are recommended. The pace will be easy and unhurried, suitable for all bikes and riders. Meet at the Museum’s building entrance.

Also, for visitors who will arrive in Boston on Saturday and wish to have a bit of sightseeing, the Veteran-Cycle Club is happy to offer a more substantial ride that afternoon. Again, it would be unhurried and suitable for all bikes and any level of fitness. Anyone interested should be in touch with Chris Barbour at his email address by Friday morning, up to noon, July 18. This will be arranged by e-mail @ Christopher.Barbour@tufts.edu

To log onto our website for the show, please click onto the URL below.
http://www.classicrendezvous.com/larzanderson.htm .

linked to the site is the "registration form" (which can be downloaded for printing) for the Concourse and the Swap Meet, plus links to many photo albums from prior shows, plus directions and contact information. If you want any additional information please write to me by email at my Yahoo address above or contact Susan at the Museum @ 617-522-6547.

Also as an addition for the show will be a display of extenct and rare automobiles which in prior years has included a few Stanley Steamer, Stutz Bearcats etc. This should all make for a very fun day for all.

Best regards,
Peter Naiman

I came across a warning while on Yahoo.com.
http://www.siteadvisor.com/sites/oldroads.com?aff_id=661
I seems someone is accusing oldroads of being a source for email addresses being used by spammers.
I may have recieved a few of these spam emails myself, but I just delete them.
I don't know what could be done about this, but someone reported a problem.

I think you mean the "Green Machine". It was originally produced by Mattel, and was a lot like the "Big Wheel", except it had rear-wheel-steering.

A few years back, Huffy purchased the rights from Mattel.

So the new Green Machine has a steel tube frame, and real bicycle tires, NOT Plastic.

MISC:   1928/29 Ingo Bike posted by: carlton young on 1/24/2008 at 8:07:53 AM
I was given and old Ingo bike by a friend's father with the understanding that I would restore it. I am stumped on the re-spoking because these bikes/scooters were propelled by an up and down motion on the scooter with the rear wheel hubs in an accentric position. In other words, all of the spokes are different lengths. I need to find a really experienced person to re-spoke these wheels and they will have to be able to cut the spokes to various lengths to do this. Can anyone give me some help?

Okay, I can log on now. Very nice issue.

It's terrible news that Glen May (RocketBike) has died.
(Glen May was working for Burt Ruttans' Scaled Composites Company, builders of Spaceship One, when he was killed in the explosion.)
I had heard the story a few months ago, but the paper didn't mention that Glen May was one of those killed.
My condolences to the family.

Burt Ruttan sold his company to Northrop/Grumman a week after the accident.

You may have read the post about my Daughter's bike, the Fiberglass Ladies Bicycle.
Well, other than the fact that it looks like it was made from a piece of 4"x6" lumber, it has nothing in common with this Wooden Bicycle from Germeny.

FOR SALE:   RANS Stratus Model A posted by: Avery Jenkins on 8/14/2007 at 8:44:13 AM
I have what may be the only RANS Stratus Model A still on the road today. Original seat, seatcover, handlebars, fairing. The only items that have been replaced are the gruppo (upgraded to Shimano Deore 6-speed SIS, circa 1985) and brakes (same, 1985). This could be a great find for a collector.
