    I recently was fortunate enough to obtain this "Rarest of rare" setup......check out the colors, vermillion over the bright green.....this was belt connected from 1 rear roller to the front wheel and then I believe a mile meter via gear drive.

    Special thanks the main man Mr......mmmmm you know who you is aka "Mr. McBadassatfindingtherarestofrare.

    Just got it, check out some of the interesting features......cast "star" hubs, cast feet/stands/stanchions, wood barrels/rollers.....I am smitten....I will try to get a bike on it here soon and source a round rawhide belt

    How many stationary racing setups like this exist? Anybody know?

    Bruh...It just dawned on me, do you think the secondary set of bracket shadows near the end of the tubular extension could be to accommodate a tandem?
    None of the other trainers I've seen are adjustable to that degree, and this one has obviously been adjusted at some point in time-

    the "stanchions" (casted uprights) on the forward roller have been moved from their original placement.....they aren't fixed permanently where they are now just a single hole drilled......I was wondering about a tandem setup myself.......lemme throw a bike on it n see whats doin

    theres prob more than you think out there, but they are seldom seen. i really like the star hubs on yours. they do make killer displays with a period bike if you have the room. ive got a couple sets of old rollers

    i really have no idea, i thought mine were pretty cool with the red white and blue, but i like yours much more, the star hubs and frame brackets are great with the massive rollers. i would think very few like yours survived. yours looks really early and really nice. my other set is smaller similar to the pic with the blue bike above. it makes me wonder, what bikes and riders trained on these over the years. great score
