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.
