Eastman Roadsters
from Yellow Jersey

We regularly receive shipments of Eastman Roadsters.These are exact replicas of the original 1913 model

Such nostalgic looking bikes! Besides the traditional 24" frame size, the newish (post WW -II) 22"
and ladies' 22" and 24" 'sweep' frames. All frame styles are the same price
as last year. We have a much improved tire and tube from Hindustan Rubber this year.
Eastman fancied up our bikes with new vinyl prismatic stickers. If you prefer a more
Victorian look, they lift easily with a hair dryer.

professional model

The above photo shows a bike with ROD brakes removed, WESTWOOD rims removed, ROADSTER HANDLEBAR removed and then re fitted with Swan Stem, aluminum bars, cantilever brakes, Velocity Dyad touring rims, stainless spokes and Michelin 700-40 tires with Schrader valve tubes. That option package adds $350 and drops about four pounds from the bike. Curious? Send an email

Pedals and mudguard stays are much improved this year and we have secured another
tranche of genuine NOS Sturmey Archer AW Three Speed hubs in 40 hole drilling. We also
stock 36h rims for use with the wonderful SRAM Super Seven German gearbox

New spares are found on our Roadster Spares page.

We didn't add these bikes into our automatic order system, so just ring us any time at
608.257.4737 or 608.257.7733 or if you wish fax to 608.257.5161
