Antique Bicycles

May 9, 2009

I’ve been hit with “Bicycle Fever” ever since I returned from the Netherlands.  I rencently picked up a 1962 Dunelt English 3-Speed that I’ve been riding all over New York City (Expect a post on this soon!).  I found these amazing old photographs below on Ebay.  Also, if old bikes interest you please check out The Old Bike Blog,which I have added to my list of conspirators.

I’m obsessed with these old Dick Tracy comics.  I love that Detective Tracy is always up against a well-dressed bad guy.  Criminals and Detectives should be this well dressed nowadays.  These are all from the 1930’s – 1950’s and I found them on Ebay.  I also love the artwork.
