Made In Austria


The rack is
Made By PLETSCHER of Switzerland.


Lightly rusted.

An aunt of the family bought this bike upon retiring
--did not live long enough to ride it

According to the
 (always true as god)

earliest versions
of Little Broken Bikes.

Age?:  Only the wise collector would know.

The back tire holds air,
the front does not.
