1912 Special Racer. CB Italia "vintage" finish IIRC, and Linus tires. I wanted something with a smooth tread that would look era-appropriate and these were what I found. They were absolute hell to get onto the rims. I don't know if it was the tires or rims that made it difficult, but I don't recommend the combination. They ride well, though, if it gets a flat, I may just not ride it again instead of wrestling and swearing and throwing tire levers and swearing some more.Looks Great! Road or special racer? Are those the CB Italia wheels? Amsterdam Electra tires? Leaning toward keeping originals as is and getting some vintage hubs to lace new wood to
These bikes were really well made and the quality shows even over 100 years later. All up with the heavier modern wheels (and maybe the bag, I can't remember), it weighs about 28 lbs.
