Cool vintage pics

Check out the pictures http://www.americancyclery.com/PHOTOS/

The posters and esp. the racing photos are great. Figure the most recent is from 50 years ago and many are from 70+ years ago. I have occasionally heard about 6 Day Racing in the US but have never seen so many photos in one collection before. Most of the vintage bikes I post about are from my early riding days. This is from a time well before that and now completelt absent from the US sports scene. Very cool stuff.

I got the link from the Classic Renezvous list and hope the shop owners don't mind their links being spread around as I, at least, think it's a great resource for us lovers of the vintage stuff.

I suppose this is as good a place as any to post a link to my favorite vintage bike collection:

If you're ever near Austin, MN it's worth a trip to see the bikes. The SPAM museum is pretty unique too.

Thanks for posting, halfspeed. That is one fabulous bicycle collection, although it's too bad they don't have any Capos.
