First off, sorry no photos, I only just got home and it's really not my bike for the photographing.
My father's been hankering for a rod brake bicycle for years and he finally found one here in Michigan with all the particulars he wanted.
I've been piddling about the internet but I haven't found much yet. It's a Vederlicht Union Sport with a 3 speed Sturmey Archer rod drum brake hub from '71 I believe he said. It's certainly curious so far. Clearly fully equipped as a dutch transport with a full vinyl chaincase, dress guards, a ring lock, bottle dynamo setup. I'm curious as to how such a bicycle ended up in Michigan. Anyone familiar with the brand at all?
