    I didn't know about the Mellowdrome in Asheville. I live about 10 miles from Charlotte Motor Speedway and road there once in time trials. Have you been to the bike shop museum in Statesville. He has a huge collection of road and mountain bikes. He also has a lot of time trial bike. Ask to go into the attic and see the collection of parts. I have a lot of pictures from there if any one wants to see them.

    What's up with THIS bike?!?

    It has a 1930's Cyclo Oppy derailleur with shifter AND a Sturmey Archer quadrant shifter!

    So this is a gearhub/deralleur combo?

    I'm seeing drum brakes on the front... and there is a rear brake cable going to the back...CRAZYTOWN 9 speed! (and 2 bottle generators)

    I think you just found the original mountain bike.

    Eddy,
    I'm very interested in this museum. Do you know the address or name that I can look up? Thanks

    Firstflight it is. Here are some pictures I took there. I spent over a hour taking pictures.I spent a lot of time taking pictures of his 7/11 Huffys bikes. A customer started to talk to me about the 7/11 team and he had all first hand information about Huffy anvintage bikes Re&#103.jpgd Serotta. I ended up buying a Dag Otto,s 1987 7/11 bike from him. He worked for Huffy and kept several broken 7/11 bikes.vintage bikes Re&#103.jpgvintage bikes Re&#103.jpg
