New Old Additions to the Shop
Now on display: very rare John Deere bicycle, nice old Schwinn and 100 year old tandem.
My dad, Dan Cleveringa, worked his magic on all three of these bikes and then gave them to Mac and I when we got engaged in 2006. They are now properly displayed for your enjoyment, come & see for yourself!
My favorite is the tandem, it has a wooden top tube, carbide headlamp, triple twisted spokes and wooden rims. The John Deere is like nothing you will ever see again with a square tank that opens, an open weave metal rack and wooden rims (which are metal plated and painted to look like wood). The Schwinn is classic head-turner. Dark red and cream paint, horn button in the tank and hearts in the chainring.
