New ride: Iverson Grand Sport 10-speed circa 1976. Best known for George Barris-designed sting rays and choppers, Iverson manufactured bikes in the 1960s and 70s. My bike isn’t sought after like early Schwinns and Raleighs— Iversons originally sold at auto parts stores and places like Woolworths—but it’s got the original Suntour derailleurs, Dia-Compte extension brakes, both of which were considered pretty innovative back in the day, and an old Mesinger leather saddle. I love this bike.
