This thread is sucking it! Here is one of the first bikes I bought when I started collecting old bicycles, over 10 years ago. it was listed on Craigslist and was only an hour or so away from me. I offered less than the seller was asking and he took my offer. I was told the bike is original, but I think it has been through and older restoration. It has a permanent place in the house but gets taken out on occasion for a delicate ride. Steyr Waffenrad is a gun manufacturer from Austria, I think its the Austrian Iver Johnson?
