Old Sears Bicycle

Old Sears Bicycle

This old Sears bicycle was behind an antique shop in Paxico, Kansas. And in the corner leaning against the building are old-time insulators.

Edit to add: I was questioning as to why the women’s bike has no bar and men’s bike has the upper bar (I really didn’t know or question why before). Well, a little research at Wikipedia:

“Historically, women’s bicycle frames had a top tube that connected in the middle of the seat tube instead of the top, resulting in a lower standover height at the expense of compromised structural integrity, since this places a strong bending load in the seat tube, and bicycle frame members are typically weak in bending. This design, referred to as a step-through frame, allows the rider to mount and dismount in a dignified way while wearing a skirt or dress. While some women’s bicycles continue to use this frame style, there is also a variation, the mixte, which splits the top tube laterally into two thinner top tubes that bypass the seat tube on each side and connect to the rear dropouts. The ease of stepping through is also appreciated by those with limited flexibility or other joint problems. Because of its persistent image as a “women’s” bicycle, step-through frames are not common for larger frames.” ~ Bicycle~Wikipedia
