First, here's a couple of shots just coming into Mr. Used.
|Several thousand square feet of this!|
|Some kind of very old car under all that dust...|
Now onto the bikes. BTW if you see something you 'recognize' I'd love to hear about it.
Bicycle #1 - they had a sign on it reading "Goremost." I found that intriguing but after a brief search I think that they must mean "Foremost" bicycles, which is a brand according to google, but not one I am familiar with. It seems to have been associated with J.C. Penney. Circa early 1960's?
Bicycle #2 - Kind of ticked off that these photos came out so blurry. Wasn't using a flash on this bike and I should have been. The result is that I cannot make out the brand. I think it was "DNO" but it could be "DRO" or something else. In any case, it's quite something. There's some sort of wire boat frame thing in front of it and I couldn't get another angle.
|It folds in two places.|
|This is the hinge at the headtube.|
|You can clearly see the other hinge.|
|It has a generator headlight and some wild handlebars.|
Bicycle #3 - This is a DelSol Bicycle. Don't know anything more about them, but that's what the headtube badge says. It utilizes a spring as a funky front shock. The seatstays are nicely shaped as well. A real work of craftsmanship, I'd suggest.
Bicycle #4 - This is a classic "CCM." The headbadge is awesome. Obviously this harkens back to the days when a license was necessary - it's posted under the saddle. This one is a real comfort cruiser, and has some real history. Sometimes you wish a bicycle could talk.
|Even the pedals are original (I suppose, by the looks of them).|
|The arcing toptube is neeat.|
|The headbadge is a stylized "CCM"|
|If you look closely you can also make out the "CCM" on the chainring.|
|This has a modern saddle so it must have been ridden within the last 20 years.|
I wonder if its even possible to unfold this one! Kind of reminds me of my back!
Anyhow, that's it for this post. Again, I would love to hear comments and insights on these if you can identify anything or have stories to share. Cheers.
