We have an open-frame Puch cycle with 26 x 1 1/4 wheels and Sturmey AW gear (not the original, unfortunately) which we'd like to date but can find no source here in UK nor on the Continent. Frame number is 680752. Can anyone point us in the right direction, please?

These mudflaps are on Pee Wee Herman's bike. Does anyone know what they are off? Cut down motorcycle or Vespa? The birds look like Cardinals. Any info would be helpful.

SWAP MEETS:   CMC Vintage Concourse posted by: Hannah Philbin on 2/28/2007 at 1:32:31 PM
I am looking for thoughts and participants...

For the past three years the Cougar Mountain Classic (downhill, cross country and road race) held at Infineon Raceway in beautiful Sonoma California has hosted a Vintage Bike Concourse to promote and celebrate this festival of cycling. In the past, local efforts have supported this feature of the event and it has proven a favorite for both athletes and spectators alike.

This year we are taking the concourse one step further with the insight, inventory and involvement of vintage cycling experts like you. We are interested in finding passionate, knowledgeable groups to come to Sonoma with energy, bikes and knowledge to help host the event and have a great time celebrating cycling of yesterday and today. We will also have a bike swap close by and would love to include cycling art and exhibitions of cycling memorabilia.

I look forward to hearing any thoughts or ideas for this years Supercuts Vintage Concourse so please feel free to contact me if you are interested in learning more or send this message along if know someone you think might be interested. I look forward to hearing from you.
