This beautiful old 1898 olive green Dayton Model 22 Special Road Racer Fixed Gear Bicycle was manufactured by the Davis Sewing Machine Company out of Dayton Ohio. Dayton Bicycles were high quality, light weight, and considered a Premiere Bicycle of the era. This Special Road Racer was a reinforced version of their Special Track Racer and was suitable for street use. Davis Sewing Machine Company also produced the rare Harley Davidson Bicycle, but being a true bicycle enthusiast “The Dayton” has more credibility in my book.
