This auction features rare and one of a kind items that Via Bicycle has acquired since we started business in 1982. We have bought out the contents of many bicycle shops and personal collections over the years. There will be some complete bicycles, parts, tools, and related ephemera. We are happy to offer for sale at auction some of our extensive and comprehensive collection.
Some of the bikes offered for sale will include a 1940’s Schwinn Paramount tourist model, an early 1980’s Colnago Super road bicycle, an exceptional early 1960’s Raleigh blue Streak model road bicycle, a 1970’s Francesco Cuevas ladies frame bicycle, complete with full Campagnolo Nuovo record component group, an exceptional 1950’s Schwinn Town & Country tandem bicycle with original paint and decals, and some turn of the 20th century items.
Some of the tools offered will include a semi complete Campagnolo tool kit with the original wooden case, professional quality Park truing stand, an original 1940’s -50’s Schwinn parts cabinet,  and many other tools no longer available. We will also be offering a lot of cycling ephemera spanning several decades, both local and international items. Some key items will include a large original 1940’s framed Raleigh poster, a beautiful warm up / track suit that belonged to Jerry Casale, who started Hill Cycle in 1929, other framed and unframed cycling related posters and prints, magazine collections, service manuals long out of print, and also vintage cycling jerseys both wool and acrylic spanning multiple eras.
