Alvin Drysdale Ace bicycle

"Alvin Drysdale built lightweight bicycles in Manhattan,
working from the 1920s until the 1950s.
He made bikes with his own name, such as Drysdale Special,
and with other names including Alvin, Velox, and
possibly Ace and Red Devil, for "jobbers" or distributors
Jonas B. Oglaend Inc. and Otto C. Ling Co."

This Drysdale was for sale at the Trexlertown swap meet. it is a nice Ace with period correct parts.
There was just a Drysdale on Ebay that went for more the $700, and it was the lesser model, the Velox.

some other information on Drysdale.
