    Found this while tooling around. A LOT of old bike pics from pre-1920

    Of course all the old stuff like boneshakers, a pic of the Wright Bros shop in Dayton, old LAW
    covers from 1890, old Sears catalogs.

    But also, some stuff that is selling *now* but the concept is ancient.

    Check out this seat http://nostalgic.net/arc/pre1920/hygenic%20saddle.jpg Look familiar?

    Or this shaft drive from 1902
    http://nostalgic.net/arc/pre1920/1902%20Columbia%20shaft%20drive%202.jpg or this one
    http://nostalgic.net/arc/pre1920/G%26J%20Rambler%20Shaft%20Drive%205.jpg or this
    http://nostalgic.net/arc/pre1920/1902%20National%20cat%203.jpg

    Straight pull hubs from 110 years ago

    Some very cool posters in there as well. Check out the 2002 Worksman INB
    http://www.worksman.com/industrialbikes.html as compared to this 1915 Sears Chief
    http://nostalgic.net/arc/pre1920/1915%20Sears%20Chief1.jpg
