Ride bikes, not other people's dreams.
If a Windsor thread got locked (which it did), this one should be locked, and throw the key away please.

1898 Crescent Model 11, from the ebay thread. Bars are mounted upside down. Note wood rims! I love this bike. It really shows you how little has changed in cycling.

the pictures arent loading for me! i really want to see it.
Very cool - just curious, have you weighed it?
If you are asking me, that's not my bike. Some ebayers want US $1400 for it if you're interested, auction ends in a couple of days. I would love a bike like that, but it's a museum piece and I'd be sorely tempted to update the rims and ride it into the ground.Originally Posted by the pope

old fixters or old fixtures???
I am dyslexic so bear with my posts.... [SIGPIC][/SIGPIC]
I'd love to have that bike too but I'd fix it up and ride it like it is. It's when I see things like that that I wish I was rich. There was a traveling bike museum at a race I did in Virginia last year that had old bikes like that. After seeing those it's been a dream of mine to once start a small collection.Originally Posted by mander
