In addition to bicycling, one of my other big interests is vintage shopping. This can be anywhere — thrift shops, barn sales, yard sales, and even auction houses. So imagine my delight when I saw a slew of bicycles up for auction at Weschler’s, one of my favorite DC auction houses.
A cheery red and white chopper-style bike was the first to catch my eye.
However, this vintage ebony Rudge was the real showstopper, thoroughly capturing my attention once I saw it.
A classic beauty with wonderful details, something I imagine Gregory Peck would ride — in a suit, of course.
There were mountain and road bikes in the mix, too, but they didn’t do much for me. I just think I will never get over my love of classic uprights. Nor do I think I need to.
