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.

Wow, nice bike! Is the paint scheme on the rims an Iver design or did similar painted rims come on other bikes back then?
Hi fat tire trader,

This paint scheme on wood wheels was used on several Iver models over the years. I have 3 or 4 other Ivers with the exact same wheels/paint. Check these links to see two of them: Pete in Fitchburg

Pete that is one nice looking iver. I love the color scheme!
Thanks Zach,
I've always liked the green and black color combination on the Ivers..................as a matter of fact I also like the red and black combination, and maroon with a green head, I REALLY like the grey with green head like the one Ivrjhnsn did...............I also like the solid black, blue, or red Ivers.......................or any Iver with pinstripping....................you probably can begin to detect a pattern here !
