    Swiss Army Courier Bicycle

    http://www.deutscheoptik.com/catalog...roducts_id=457



    Swiss Army Courier Bicycle
    [TRK001] $699.00 $599.00




    Yup, those Swiss Army boys must be a bunch of strapping lads to be able to pump these bomb-proof, 48 lb, monsters around those hills! Of course Swiss Army bikes are legend by now, and sadly, history… They stopped making ‘em here a couple of years ago. No more races, unless nostalgia teams get together. This is about the last of what has been released from Swiss surplus. The Courier model. Different from the artillery version in that it’s lighter and has a different rack set-up. These bikes are in original condition, which is quite good. (What’s there to break?) The long list of features include hand and coaster brakes, big sprung leather saddle, dynamo driven head-and taillights, rear document rack, leather toolkit with tools, air pump, sealed bearings, built-in bicycle lock and key, fenders, and updated reflector pedals. If you live in the hills, this will be the work-out of a lifetime! Wonderful flatland cruiser. Get a piece of Swiss history before they’re all gone. Additional freight charges, of $150.00,apply

    Sexy bike. There's two bags, the shell case and the courier bag.

    I like it too, but I don't know where I would ride it. Maybe like a cruiser, 3-4 miles to the open air concerts.

    I know a road racer, Cat 2 or so in the local area who commutes on the US Army version of this..some old one he found in a barn or something. It weighs like 50 lbs and he swears by it in the off season. Says it is is so heavy when he hops on his racing bike he feels like he has a rocket strapped to his butt. He also says its just a lot of fun to ride around on.
