    I picked up this late 20's Iver Johnson yesterday. Bikes like this never come up for sale around here. It's got the wrong wheels and has been painted, but should be a fun bike.

    How I found it.

    Even better I found out that this is a road racer model that someone painted over the nickel plated head tube.

    Is the whole frameset nickel plated?
    That would be amazing!

    I believe it is just the headtube. They used internal lugs on these frames. The forks are also nickel plated.
