CRAZY TALL FRAME. 6' 8" riders bike found. Bought this unusual bike Saturday at a garage sale. The deceased owner was six foot eight. I'm six foot two and I can't even get my leg over it. Talk about a bike for a niche market, LOL. I have a pre-war tall frame Mead Crusader ballooner that's a 20 inch frame. This bike is a 27 inch frame with a 37 inch stand over height. OMG!

What unusual tall or short frame bikes have you come across?

I liked it because of local Provenance.
Retired fireman Jan Sander owned and rode it with the other FF of HB and CM
He was a "Volunteer Fireman" in Costa Mesa before he was employed by Huntington Beach.

Schwinn made a true 28” continental (71cm)
Most every Japanese mfg produced a 27”
However Puch I believe had a 29” seat tube bike. Sold like crazy in Detroit in the late 70’s. Retail was 175 or so.
I sell the old 28” Schwinns when I can find them and get 6-800 + refurbished All Day Long!!

Not a bike found, but I remember reading about this one back in the 2000's when I was really into moutain biking, and was able to find a photo of it.

It was made for Yao Ming who was a 7'6" NBA Player.

These big bikes would look so much nicer with 36" wheels.

1915  Miami Bulldog ___ Tall Frame ..jpg



1915-Miami-Bulldog-catalog-.jpg



Possible interesting ownership aspects of this 1915 Miami Bulldog .....

2014 ..........

Was peeping Antique Bicycles on e-b ... the machine was just listed
by a rep of Jesse James for 1,600 Simoleons B.I.N. plus another 100
shipping.


Not knowing how to buy something on e-b .. called Scott Mc. ... asked
him to make the purchase for me, and I would reimburse. Done Deal.

Jesse James and his soon-to-be ex-wife (Sandra Bullock) were going
thru a divorce ... this machine was something that needed to go ..........
There were no dings of any kind on the bicycle ... all original paint.

2017 ............

Many are the times I used to get offers on the machine. One of my budz
in Dixieland made me an offer I could not refuse .... the '15 Bulldog sailed on.
