Possibly the rarest bicycle ever offered on eBay

The Elgin Robin features a distinctive zeppelin style tank, space age speedometer stem pod, teardrop pedals and full leather seat.

Looking to continue the leading edge styling and concepts of the Elgin bicycle line, in 1938 THREE prototype SHAFT DRIVE Elgin Robins were created to showcase to the east, west and Midwest dealers. With the final retail price projected to be more than a used car, the project was scrapped leaving only three prototypes in existence. This fully restored example was acquired directly from the National Bicycle History Archive of America ( NBHAA) and has been in private collectors hands for the past 72 years.
