Golden Oldy Cyclery is a private museum of cycling history focusing on the early years. The main room is equipped as an 1889 bicycle shop featuring a selection of "Ordinary" or "Penny Farthing" high bicycles of the late 1880s. The main brand featured are: Victor, Rudge, Star, and Columbia. However, there are many examples of other brands. The thrust is to show the top quality bikes in a setting with all of the accessories as a high quality shop would have provided. In the 2 original showcases there are a variety of bike lamps, brake parts, saddles, leather tool kits and etc. Also, the NCR cash register completes the shop look. The walls are covered with period photos of cycling. Other rooms contain special bikes and trikes - Coventry Rotary, and the only known removable rear of the full suspension 1887 Whippet Trike. An extensive pre 1900 cycling library and wall of Colorado cycling photos highlight the main upstairs room. Victorian Cycling Poetry is piped in during visits. There is far more to see and hear....
