Just a beautiful bike.  I remember seeing it in the museum.  Wasn't it found hanging in the basement of a bike shop or something?

I am the third owner. It used to be another members bike before me. He got it from a Balloon tire collector that found it brand new in the basement of a bike shop in Illinois. The bike shop decal is still on it today.
