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?

Do you know if this is the same Steyr that produced the J. C. Higgins/Sears "Made in Austria" lightweights? And what is the translation of "Waffenrad"? Google says the literal translation is weapon-wheel. Come to think of it, where did Royal Enfield get the "Built Like a Gun" slogan? Maybe a reference to the Lee-Enfield rifle? Not to mention Birmingham Small Arms, better known as BSA. I never realized there were so many connections between bicycles, motorcycles and guns!

Nice bike! The 28 x 1½ tires, what brand are they, and do you know of a source for 28 x 1½ tubulars today?

I wish I had more info on Steyr but the gun connection is all I know. Tires are Barum from Czechoslovakia.
