Wore out three sets of tires already!
1922 Iver Johnson Superior Truss Bridge Roadster or Racer. Serial #366187. Paint, pin striping and decals look original, there is a new Gus Salmon waterslide decal on the down tube above the original faded out decal, Persons saddle, star pedals w/o end caps, ND coaster brake, front wheel is medal clad with two pinstripes and straight(recently added and not shown in photos), the rear hoop looks like it could be original Iver yellow and spins clean with a little bobble, nice grips, fenders and drop stand with clip included. Also a pair of drop bars, in case you want to go Racer. There is a 2 digit number on the rear dropout above the brake arm(?), I cant make it out but it looks like 29 or 62. A pair of Tufo tires and tape is included and you are riding a 98 year old bike. Please see photos for condition. The bike is very light and weights 25#'s as it sits with the Tufo Tires and no fenders.

Look Ma, No Hands!
When my dad bought his small bike store, Jack's Bike Shop, (1959) in Brooklyn, NY, the seller (Jack Gutman) was teaching me things about the business. The store sold Schwinn and several other brands. Jack explained to me that Schwinn & Rudge were the best (current) bikes, though the best of all was Iver-Johnson. With all the bike repairs that arrived at my dad's busy store, I hadn't seen an Iver Johnson until the late 80's, at the Trexlertown, PA bike meet. Now I know what Jack Gutman meant, about it being the best. They were a "firearms" company, and the bikes reveal a firearms level of quality. BTW, Jack was a WW-1 veteran, and he showed me a huge crater in his leg. I was shocked. Especially since it didn't slow him down at all.
He was a super-friendly guy, that just loved throwing compliments. He told my dad, dozens of times, that "you could be president". He must have been about 5'1" with (always) a "stogie" in his mouth. He worked for my dad, for a few years. The store, which was open Sunday's, had to "grease" the cops
on car patrol, in order to remain open. About four of them took turns, collecting their "payoff". One each Sunday, without fail.

Did he ever tell you how much of a payoff for the cops it was??

$5 or $6, 60 years ago, though more in later years, though I don't remember what amount. It was "business as usual" for Brooklyn cops, of decades ago. BTW, the store was in East-NY section of Brooklyn, where it was predominantly Jewish, so closing Sunday's should not have been mandatory.
As an aside, I befriended a cop in the Coney-Island area, during the mid 60's. He made his "rounds" while on duty, to collect from every business or brothel that was doing the slightest thing "against the law". The really weird thing is, that decades later came the MOVIE, "Car-54, Where Are You" and it mimics this same cop, to a T. 100%!!! What a great & funny movie
