“On the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month (11:00 am, 11 November, 1918) the armistice was enacted and the guns of World War I fell silent. The war was over.”

See the full story at Winter. This bike turned out so rad!

    Does anybody know what the supposed advantages of dual top tubes are?
    Thanks

      Bike tubes in 1918 were not particularly strong, and the roads were just as bad. The double top tube was a way of attempting to strengthen the bike. With modern materials this bike has them purely as a nod to the original. That and they look killer.
