    WANTED: Amesbury-built bicycle

    I just figured I'd bump this request.

    First Pedal Driven Bicycle?

    Technically a treadle-driven bicycle, but the first use of cranks (mounted to the rear axle driven by the treadles). The first pedal-driven bicycle is attributed to Pierre Lallament 20+ years later with actual pedals mounted to cranks affixed to the front wheel axle.

    CWC Roadmaster Repaint vs. Original

    Some bikes you can save while some you can't. Just have at it and make it into something you love. A good chunk of my bikes are old repaints that I'd love to rework if I have the time or opportunity. The key is to enjoy the process.
