Anyone for a 1920 Harley on Ebay?

Lot of angle on the front fork, Wonder how it felt to ride.


Something just doesn't look right there, I can't put my finger on it but I've just got a feeling that something's amiss..

Apart from the fact that the chainwheel & sprocket both appear to be designed for inch pitch chain

Motorbike land call them "Hardly Driveables" ......... for obvious reasons.

While looking for an old Malvern star I have read of old/vintage Cinelli stems and handle bars fitted to old bikes . Today this 1956 vintage Cinelli Riviera frame and fork was listed on ebay. Looked old with unusual flashy lugs.

http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Vintage-Cine ... 1e872eef3a

Found some photos and info searching through BNA postings as well as some more info on this site : http://www.classicrendezvous.com/Italy/ ... meline.htm ...... if anyone is interested.
On this site it mentions that from 1949-1952 the frames had a separate seat tube collar, then in 1953 the "fast-back" seat post bolt system introduced. If this is correct it means it is pre 1954 . 1951 The Model C. Corsa (later known as Mod. Riviera). This would make it a 1952 model. re this seat bolt system . odds on I am wrong . Hopefully someone will step in and correct or confirm .

Notes:
- Cinelli would paint or chrome frames anyway the customer wanted through the 1970s (matching a color swatch sent by customer if need be, substituting a decal for the headbadge, deleting decals, chrome etc.).
- Mod. S.C. track frames and Mod. B lack oiler and drain holes in bottom bracket shell.
- Cinelli branded Magistroni cranks gone after the 1950s.
- Over the years Cinellis were built with various dropouts including Campagnolo Cambio Corsa and Paris-Roubaix, Simplex TdF and Altenburger among others.
- Cinelli M71 pedal still shown in 1983 catalog.
- Mod. Riviera city/sport bike was primarily built for the English and German markets by a builder from Monza, who never built under his own name, according to an interview with Andrea Cinelli. Over the years the Riviera was built by various companies, including Garlatti in Parma.
- Over the years Cinelli offered juvenile bikes, boys and girls Rivieras, along with city bikes, all made by various companies. But the Mod. S.C. and Mod. B were always made in house, never by an outside company.
-
The head badge has the words "MARCA DEPOSITATA" at the bottom and the stem badge does not.

Cinelli bicycles are not cheap but it would seem that the Riviera is the least expensive of the trio.

To wreck the theory on the seat tube collar era and the reference I made to the "least expensive" check out this 1961 Riviera on ebay in Italy. Of course it has to sell to be worth the seller's valuation.
http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/321301856221 ... 1436.l2649

I wonder If any of the earliest Rivieras were built in house ( does not say) or as stated the Rivieras were not made in house. Milano to Monza 22.8 klms. Not too far on a quick bike. Hills?

Not ebay, or cycling related, but reading the local auto buyers guide the other day I came across a 2002 Magna that someone had spent over $50,000 on, with matte black paint, rear suicide doors and air suspension :shock: .

EDIT: found it on gumtree, enjoy! http://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/mooloola ... 1034090766

... and I don't suppose you'd ever get pulled over. Redefines 'overcapitalisation', from an automotive perspective.

Camera-challenged, but looks good, even through the blur.

Still OT but I saw an even sadder crime against automobiles yesterday, a huge "The Brotherhood- 1%" sticker on a bloke's back window.


On a Mitsubishi Mirage :lol: .
