The owner of this Frejus had this to say, "In summer of 1962 I went to Harlem with a friend who was racing road bikes and had collided with an extremely fat man who walked onto the course. My friend said his head went deep into the man's stomach. The man burped and walked away, however, the bike was totaled. My friend was racing Frejus bikes and knew the owner of the [local] shop who I believe was Thomas Avenia. The shop opened at midnight, which was certainly unusual. The streets were nearly deserted but cyclists began showing up as the midnight hour approached. Most were African Americans. When the barred door opened we walked down a long hallway with bikes of increasing value inside of glass enclosures. Finally we arrived in the shop where I believe Thomas sold a bike to my friend, but didn't have a frame in my size. I ordered the Frejus with a 25 inch frame to be delivered to my home in San Diego." This Sunday the bike can be yours.

Wow, it looks like there will be a lot of gems to purchase at the swap and I hear you have over 15 vendors! What could be better than bikes, local brews and BBQ. Thanks for putting this together!
