Bike Swap Meet

Went to the Bicycle Swap and Classic Bike Show 2008 last Sunday which is hosted by the St. Louis Regional Bike Federation. Saw a bunch of neat vintage and antique bikes. Standouts were the Lemon Peeler,

and the 1890's ladies' safety bike.
From Bike Swap Mee...

The above photo shows a closeup of the rear tire and chain housing. Yes, the rims, fender, and chain guard are all made of wood. The laces you see are made of some kind of twine-like fiber. Fascinating.
