 Dedicated to Lightweight Vintage Bicycles, circa 1900~1983.
This not-for-profit site is to encourage those interested in enjoying and preserving vintage lightweight "racing" style bicycles, from the early 20th century until 1983. These primarily have steel frames, most often lug built, and not welded, injection molded, nor glued. We are devoted to road and pista machines, not mountain bikes, BMX, recumbent, middle weights nor balloon-tired bikes. Those bikes have merit, but are not "On Topic" for the Classic Rendezvous.
    Our goals are:
1.) identification of makers.
2.) publishing images of original bicycles & their components.
3.) providing key information about the makers & their history.
4.) listing resources.
5.) promote camaraderie & communication among enthusiasts. 

     Contributions or corrections are gratefully accepted

From the 1949 film "A Boy, A Girl and A Bike"
