1952 Simplex Servi-Cycle USAF

Core donated by Doug Heron . . . thanks Doug. 

As originally obtained by Doug's dad:


      What a project!            Granddaughter, Tracy

This was a military model used at March Air Force Base in the early 50's. It had an early taillight and a sidepipe and muffler - very unusual.

This bike was restored as used at March AFB.

Interestingly enough, when uncovering the coats of paint down to the original Air Force colors, the fender had a remnant of the sticker showing that this bike was from the same outfit that my dad ran in the 50's:

The 320th Field Maintenance Squadron 320 FMS.

. . . yes it is a small world.
