Those crazy cyclists...

Wright brothers - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: "Capitalizing on the national bicycle craze, they opened a repair and sales shop in 1892 (the Wright Cycle Exchange, later the Wright Cycle Company) and began manufacturing their own brand in 1896"

I have a Wright Brothers bike. Totally kick ass riveted steel frame with a 42" wheel in front and 12" wheel in the back.
The bike rocks but doesn't corner well in singletrack.

Ummm, heh, I was just joshin'.
I know I'm old, but I was not around when the Brother's had their shop!
Sorry, I am a smart-@$$ and just can't help myself some times.
Forgive me.

I thought maybe you were a collector of the rare and curious. Now I'm gonna have to surf one up.
