    i think i had a german bike!!! i sold it but heres a pic...[​IMG] it was a 28" bicycle and looked 40"s or 50"s (i think) and the head badge said it was a "gazelle" and it had pinstriping on it and that told me it was a model "go-zelle" which was striped on the side of the frame on the top tube...it also has rod brakes only on the front and it had the remains of an old bell...it was just missing the cap...it also had a headlight and reflector (i kept both) and the reflector attaches to the tube above the rear dropouts which i thought was cool...it had some weird name on the coaster brake arm that i dont remember nor could make out...there was a picture stamped on it too and it looked like an eagle or something with its foot on a ball...oh and the back fender had lots of holes down the sides which tells me it had skirt gaurds...if anyone has any info about what this bike is and how much it was worth...it would be much appreciated...thanks! -teetsboy95

    Actually i think VW put them out of business due to its name.
    they should have bought it and made bicycles accsesory to the Cars. We could only wish.

    Here is one of my oldest German bikes. I have an older Heidemann cruiser but it is in pieces. This bike is a 65 Steyr Thunderbird. It is a pretty rare muscle bike and one of my favorites. This makes me want to take this one for a ride some time tomorrow.

    it kinda reminds me of a huffy because of the style of the crank. anybody else think so?

    Huffy's first muscle bike was a black and white bike called the "Penguin". It was actually released before the Schwinn Stingray by a couple months but only in CA.It does have a similar chainwheel but it is a 3 piece crank. Pretty much all cantilever frame 20 inch muscle bikes look the same to me. The small details are the only thing that sets them apart. My favorite things on this bike are the hand painted factory pinstripes and the really unique polo seat.
