42 or 43 i forgot the year
before as he bought it
made the TP stencils for the fenders yesterday. he should get that paint by friday and the red tip on the fender. did a little research and it turns out this used to belong to some kind of chemical warfare unit. hence the CWS plate!
My 1954 Swiss army bike....before..... All original including paint.
modified exclusively with it's own parts, like it could have been done in '54. Modified tubes and handle bar repainted to match original patina
I love it!!!!
Sweet!!! The first looptail I have seen from the old school fat tire era.
If your psycho and you know it clap your hands! (That's your cue)
Very nice combo!!! I´m more a flat fender guy, but those jeep and trailer are awesome!
Is that 30. fully functional or just like mine... a poser?
To answer your question, 'a looptail' refers to a frame where the seatsays and chainstays are one piece. in some instances it is one 'continuos' loop of tubing that is attached to the rest of the frame at the seat tube and the bottom bracket / kickstand area. This style was used by several vintage bike manufacturers and BMX as well.
Here's a modern example from http://www.genuinebicycleproducts.com
Hope this helps.

lol.... Thank you.
I carry a letter from BATF in the glovebox saying it's been adequately 'neutered'. They say once a machine gun, always a machine gun. Well, not when you strip the internals and weld a block of steel inside.
Wow, thanks for the lesson. I sort of figured that but to see how it's been used over the years is nice to know.
