Vintage 1927 Iver Johnson Arms & Cycle Works Mobicycle Bicycle built in Fitchburg Massachusetts. This Iver Mobicycle was a little hard to research because it was not pictured in the Catalogs. Iver Catalogs feature the smaller Mobicycle, where the top tube slopes down with the motorbike tubes getting smaller towards the head tube. This Iver Mobicycle does the opposite and gets bigger toward the head tube. The Bike is not shown but only listed as a Larger 20″ frame upgrade option. This Old Boy has metal covered wood wheels, truss fork, Unique Iver fenders, and Great Patina telling a story of many years of service.
