1939-1941 Packard (Roadmaster) 4-gill

Original unrestored Roadmaster “4-gill”, nicknamed such due to the row of 4 louvers on each side of the tank. Most Roadmaster models from this era had only 3 louvers. The head tube on these bikes was taller than other mens models, matching the head tube size of ladies models.

The badge on this bicycle reads “Packard” but there was no actual relationship to the Packard automobile company.
