A customer at the shop told me there was a banana seat bike in someone's yard a few blocks behind the shop so I went to check it out. I've not seen one like it but I'm assuming that Almart is like a German Walmart - nothing fancy. It didn't have a front wheel on it when I got it. It shows signs of having a stick shifter on it at some point and was yellow gold. Has a Sturmey Archer rear hub dated 1969.

Almart was actually and American department store chain. We had two of them locally and they both closed sometime in the late 1970's.

ooops by the look of the newish paint where the shifter was,maybe more like this.

Funny has all english parts with a frame that's almost a USA design.

interesting import bike. Looks pretty rusted on the paint, will it clean up ?
Look forward to seeing the restore . ( or, if you decide to move it along, let me know, always need more for my ever-growing 'euro fleet ' )
