Hand cuff for a bike lock ?

I got a Atala bike given to me and I went to move it and couldn't understand why it wouldn't move until I started to look and found what looks like a Hand cuff built into the bike and when locked goes around the wheel. I've seen everything now.

It's a frame lock. Many European bikes have em. My dad uses Smith and Wessons as an auxiliary bike lock though.

Yes, now you've seen an older model of frame mounted rear wheel lock. Very common around here.

Well I've never seen a bike like this. I want to clean it up and see if I can sell it.

When I taught police bicycle patrol, I showed the tacit of handcuffing one cuff to the rear rim/tire if the bike would be out of your sight for a short time; it works amazingly well. Just don't forget it's there when you get back on the bike The photo below is not the result, but it is common during training (you notice it's done on nice soft grass)

Here is the bike when it was locked to another bike. Haven't had a chance to take anymore pictures yet. As you can see I'm not good at taking pictures. When I get a chance I'll try again.

Nice bike. I like those frame locks. I have a much more modern version on my Breezer that I also have a chain I can plug into it so it can be locked to something stationary.
