Vintage Iver Johnson Diamond Frame Special Roadster Bicycle

Vintage Iver Johnson Diamond Frame Special Roadster Bicycle

30th October 1908 (No Comments)

Iver Johnson was famous for there Truss Bridge Frame But but were not limited to that. This 1908 Iver Johnson Special Roadster Bike is a fine example of Iver’s high end diamond frame bicycles that were built with Shelby steel tubing and new frame building techniques. The diamond frame boasted a lighter weight racer frame with comparable strength to the iconic truss bridge frame. This early Iver has unique Iver cranks and bottom bracket that were only used for a few years. There’s a lot of interesting early Iver components that may of only been used a couple years until improvements were made. The Diamond Frame Special Roadster may look kinda plain Jane but reflects the Craftsmanship and Beauty to be expected from Iver Johnson Bicycles.

This Iver has mostly Original Paint and Pin Striping and is Lux Low patina preserved. The bikes original parts have amazing nickel plating, some of the nicest I have seen. The wheels are early Iver pointed profile wood rims laced to 32 hole Iver Front Hub and a Rear 36 hole Corbin Model 8 Coaster Brake. The Tires are Vintage 28″ x 1 1/2″ White tubulars, they are hard, hold a some shape but not air. The crank & bottom bracket are unique to the year. The front end is Special Iver Johnson Arch Crown fork, Early Iver Headset, No Extension Stem, and Drop Bars with repro cork grips. The Drive is Skiptooth. The Leather Saddle is a Antique Brooks B-66. The Frame is a 20″ Model. The Wood Wheels and Patina is Beautiful and although completely rebuilt, I would say she is more of a show piece than 100 year old Rider.

This Amazing Bicycle is Rebuilt, Cleaned, and Sealed.  This Bicycle would Be Perfect For a Collection, Conversation or Decoration. Click here for Details of the Lux Low Vintage Patina Restoration Process on this Bike.
