Old Spokes Home: Early 1890’s Tangent Geared Bicycle


Glen at Old Spokes really came up on a gem here. This bike is thought to be built in the early 1890’s by the Ames Manufacturing Company in Chicopee Falls, MA, and it might just be a one-of-a-kind. Derek put a nice video together featuring a couple of my favorite former co-workers Greg and Glenn, restoring this small piece of history.
