My girlfriend just came back from a photography convention with this picture. No idea what this bike could be, but I'm kind of curious. Anyone have any ideas?
The type of photo dates it to the early 1900's. Presumably it was taken at or near Ava, IL, so it could be a Chicago bike company (either Mead or Schwinn)
The head tube angle on this thing is crazy, but it looks like it still has horizontal dropouts. Could be for touring or similar but I'm not sure.
This probably belongs in the vintage forum, but i figure I should give the fixie/ss crowd first look.
