Apparently, these electric things have been around for some time now. Go figure.

Yep- electric bikes are nothing new- I was quite surprised at the early patents and the many renditions of Electric power on two wheels, starting back in the later 1800s. Check out the “Step Through” Fig. 4

Here is a great site to see the progress and timeline.

And.. Wait ’till you see what we have on display at our Verona Shop. We will have a nice presentation for you soon, but check this out- electric bicycles have been here about as long as electric light bulbs. But before that…

Soon, you can come see a “Springfield Roadster” on display in our Verona Shop. This is a very special bicycle that had been ridden on some very special rides. Stay tuned for our upcoming presentation of this beautiful and historical bicycle.

We are excited to have the Springfield Roadster over at the shop- wait ’till you see it!!!!
