    With the help of some of my friends in CT, I was able to locate, and add to my collection, this very nice example of an early,1917ish, Iver Johnson truss frame roadster . This bike still retains the early “flat” style mudguards that are somewhat difficult to find, and is in overall very nice original condition. The original black paint is in decent condition and the green head and darts really make the bike stand out nicely. A well preserved example of an early Iver.
