1910 Iver Johnson Track Bike

Today we take a look at a bike from Steve’s personal collection, A 1910 Iver Johnson track bike. The bike was built in Fitchburg, Massachusetts. For 105 years old, the bike is all original, including the seat, tires, and wood rims which are still true. The bike was raced at the Newark Velodrome, which opened in 1907, it was closed and demolished in 1930.  Photos were taken by Alan Sikiric.
