There are indeed some very nice rides in that collection & I rather liked the saddle on the 1903 Tribune with its "flatulence feature".

I noted with interest that the Americans did not seem to grasp the meaning & significance of 'lightweight' bicycles untill the 70's as all the quality stuff up untill then was either British, European or Continental.
The 1954 Herculese is very nice but the 1958 Olmo has a lot going for it too.
Carbine & SJH cycles, & Quicksilver BMX
Now that's AUSTRALIAN to the core.
