    Welcome to the Ozzie/NZ forum. Unfortunately there aren't too many of us around anymore.

    Would I be right thinking that pre 1920 bikes are pretty light on the ground in NZ and Ozz?
    I am guessing that while the 1890-1910 boom was happening in the USA we just didn't have the roads for them?
    Anyone know of any down this way?

    I've a couple of pre 1920s bikes. There aren't many around. Those that are are probably kept in collections or sheds.

    Good luck finding the Pierce chainless. I imagine it would be a rare beastie anywhere nowdays.
