    WINDSOR OLYMPIA sn350143 She has WINDSOR name on hubs and fork crowns, Eastman rod brakes and a Rocket Brand rear cog. I added the B-68, Schwalbe 28's and a 1950's telephone bell where the missing headlamp goes. It also came with matching blue box fenders and a rear rack that I use as the cycles kickstand. I have no idea from where or when she was made?[​IMG]

    Ask them to get two and ship one to me. They are excellent 20's era cycle reproductions without all the 20's era cycle problems!
    Me gusta las bicicletas con ruedas grande... and you know this man!

    P.S.
    By the way, the green balloon tires that showed up today look aaaaaaah. SWEET! :mrgreen:
