Sail Me


Recently found on ebay. Dating from 1919 this Sail-Me free flight (what else in those days) paper glider, just look at the clothes them boys were wearing ! I guess everyone was wearing a cap as well.

Sorry Brian, not correct, although geographically pretty close.....



Yes Howard...that generation of bikes is tricky for us "youngsters"...
I managed to identify it by magnifying the original photo quite a bit (those old photos are indeed of very high resolution..)

Sorry guys....I was a bit wrong about the "geographics"...
Think "middle of Europe", and it has a "two-words" name...

The tank insignia says Moto Reve....

How about a set of old-school bicycle tools, various makes....



What comes with today's bikes is more likely an instruction on its disposal....

Can't say I know the correct name of that bike, not that that means much.
Would be nice to have it now though.
