    Kind of an old tale and I can't remember the specifics but the 1914 story was proved bunk. Regardless, an awesome image and example of nature "prevailing."

    Nope.

    Well, at least according to the image, a 1914 - at least 18 years bike. Perhaps an 1896 bike.

    Also, bike is way too small for an 18 year old.

    Plus the fact that the US didn't enter that war until 1917...theoretically, he could've enlisted in another army, but unlikely.

    The newspaper article above is probably the way it happened.

    The article says it was a hard rubber tire. The bicycle was left on the tree in 1954.
