    No Problem, I know it is a trek from either or, but worth it in both cases.
    Please share ours as well in your circle...

    What could be better than seeing an Iver Johnson racing bike at the "Fitchburg Rides" show..................................................seeing nine of them of course !! Starting to bring the bikes in to set up the indoor Iver Johnson Show at the Fitchburg Historical Society. Stop in and check out the show after the swap. Keep an eye out here for some special parts that will be for sale.

    Hello Cabers,

    This old tandem frame is in the cellar of the Fitchburg Historical Society and will most probably be sold at the "Fitchburg Rides" swap meet on June 23rd. Does anyone recognize the manufacturer? Pete in Fitchburg
