What about the bikes that actually have a direct connection to the cars we love?

Phil Remington even is purported to have lent his engineering skills to these.

This thread seems like an appropriate home for this picture, even if the car is a brand X.



Fantastic picture. Puts the size of the bike in perspective. Pretty lady helps too.

With the rear caliper brake, white seat, front fender and 90 degree bend shifter would lead me to believe the Krate is a very late '68 or early'69.

Ross are nice but kind of chunky....schwinn again wins

Does anyone remember the 1970s kids show "Wonderama" with Bob McAllister?  They were always giving away a Ross Apollo 5-speed.  I always wanted one of those.
