Laclede Bicycle

Here's an auction I'll be watching..........

Click to enlarge
Heres an old original paint bicycle probably from near the turn of the century. Cool truss frame and unique 3 piece handlebar stem. The Troxel seat has lots of cracking and coming loose at the front. Front wood wheel (28") has damage and is pretty crooked. Aside from that its a nice straight bike. Fenders are dent free and have the original braces. You can still make out where it says "Laclede" on the down tube. Killer headbadge says "E C Simmons - Laclede - Simmons Hardware Co. - Manufacturers & Distributers USA". Under the "E C Simmons" it has the number "660". Rear wheel and grips are incorrect. If you installed a rear wood wheel this would be a great bike to display as is! Check out the pics and email with any questions. Thanks!

Winning bid: US $385.00

that rear-wheel kickstand seems like a suspiciously good idea --- how come i never see that on new bikes?
