I've had it since it was new and haven't been able to find any info online. I'm getting ready to restore it and would love to find a source for the original stickers. Thanks.

No idea on the bike but it looks like some nice Lester mags! If so you got a little $$$ just in the rims.

I had one of those that was stock yellow! Everyone always wanted to sit on it to test the suspension. I believe I ended up painting it black. Not sure where you would get the stickers for the bike maybe an old bike shop that used to sell them might have some idea.

Iverson was the second bike line launched by Jerry Steller and partner (can't remember his first name) Berkowitz. Their first line was Stelber (Stel-Ber), but they bought some really cheap European bikes, and slapped their badge on 'em. It appears they brokered a deal, importing bikes in '56 for Sears, while main supplier Murray, was building their new factory in Tennessee. (no record of a strike that I could ever find). So Stelber earned a bad rep. They later came up with the name "Iverson", and all I've personally seen have at least a few, if not all, parts from Chain Bike Co, a.k.a Ross. Both were NY based. Whomever invented the monoshock design must have forgotten to patent it, as there seem to be many different versions! ~Adam

I have the same frame (and shock) but a cast iron fork and steering stem, with "ASHTABULA" cast into them. It had no pedals or seat when I got it.
I'm glad I found your pic! It confirmed what I thought the C-chsnnel with 3 holes was for, at the back of the seat tube.
PS: At almost 50 years old, I still ride mine around town.
