1931 Iver Johnson Truss Bridge Roadster

Take a look at this original un-restored Iver Johnson bicycle, featuring their famous “Truss Bridge” frame design. With serial number 505740, this bike is estimated to be a deluxe 1931 model based on information provided by helpful members of the CABE, in the Iver Johnson discussion thread.

The seat, seat post and pedals are not correct, but otherwise this bike remains very original. The original paint is in amazing condition, as are the Lobdell wood rims and original nickel plating. This may have been the last year that Iver Johnson was using nickel plating on their bicycles before switching over to chromium plating. The gold plated badge was a feature of the higher-end models offered by Iver Johnson at the time.
