Along with the exhibiting and promoting of bicycles, there was a brisk commerce in parts, equipment, and vintage clothes. It was enough to make my head spin.

However subsequent yr maybe I will plan things better and spruce up one in all my vintage beauties for present and tell.

In July 2013, I went to the three vintage stores in Holly, Michigan, that I’ve been going to almost yearly since I was a child. Last year I went by myself. After I went in the third store I noticed an vintage bicycle made for a woman in the window. I primarily accumulate males’s bikes, but since it was an early bike I needed to take a fast take a look at it once I went inside. It wasn’t just any outdated bike; it was a girls Indian model bike. It was 100% authentic, too. I’ve seen other males’s Indians, however I’d by no means seen a lady’s before. I didn’t have nearly sufficient cash, so I negotiated a lower cost and paid part money, part credit card. I had to have it! I posted footage to an internet bike discussion board and discovered it’s a 1916 mannequin and quite scarce, as I had thought.
