Notes: I get a kick out of the Speedboy Special from Spokane, Washington. And I like the De Luxe Aero-Flyer next to it, though I wish it had an aeroplane on it like the Derby below. Notice the Manton & Smith Gold Eagle, which has “BIKE LOK” in the center because, as collector/classic bicycle expert Leon Dixon of the National Bicycle History Archive of America explained to me, “M&S bicycles of that period came with a locking mechanism built into the head of the frame.” Thanks Leon!
