Trend Watch: Sandwich Board Bikes

Photos: Clarence Eckerson

Last year I bought an old one-speed Rifton cargo trike, partly under the delusion that it could one day be used to showcase inventory outside the neighborhood newsstand/used book store that I dream of owning in my retirement years -- assuming periodicals, books and retirement still exist (see: delusion).

Clarence Eckerson sends along these shots from city bike shops that beat me to it by a few decades. Good stuff, Clarence.
