Details

You could be the proud owner of this vintage Flying Merkel Bicycle. This bicycle was produced by the Miami Cycle MFG&CO. Flying Merkel was a motorcycle company (which you can find history on here: http://www.theflyingmerkel.com/site/history,33.html). This great bicycle is looking for a new home, and it could be yours.

BIKE CONDITION
This bicycle is in great as found condition. The original paint looks great with few chips and scratches, with really nice silver double pinstripe and silver "Flying Merkel" on the down tube. The painted wood rims look great! Tires are hard and crusty. The nickel plating is there but rusty. The Musselman arm-less coaster looks good and seems to "function".

Nothing has been done to this bicycle and we would recommend a full tune up and parts replacing before riding.
This bicycle is being sold as is, please see photographs for details.
