You could be the proud owner of this vintage Crescent 3 speed bicycle. Hand built in Sweden in 1940 this bike features a beautiful chain guard, unique lugwork and a hidden tool kit in the rear rack. Perfect for the retro inspired collector, this bicycle is looking for a new home and it could be yours.


The bike is in very overall condition for it's age and free of bends, crack and corrosion. The brown paint is a bit faded but has very few small marks and scratches to be found throughout the bike. The bike appears to be original with the exceptions of rear tire and rear rim which appears to be repainted.

This bicycle appears to be ridable, but we would recommend a tune up or safety check over by a qualified mechanic before riding.

This bicycle is being sold as is, please see photographs for details.
