We are proud and sad to be auctioning this piece of transportation history. Alvin Drysdale was an New York custom cycle builder in the 30's thru 50's and has said to be influenced by the early bike builders of his time. He designed the frame in new york and sources prime parts from all over the world to assemble his bikes. The bikes today are highly sought after by collectors and traders. In 1938 this red devil was 44 dollars retail..
A harley davidson was 400 dollars. This was a very expensive road bike. These bikes were used in tour de france and other european and american events.
The wheels are wood and have no cracking. The grips have unwrapped and i have left the bike original and have not modified anything. The bike is inoperable and for display purposes only. I hope this goes to a collector or museum that will feature it for its originality and custom coach work.
