Is it because most of us weren't the *right age* kids when the 1940's bikes were new? Perhaps it is that the '40's bikes don't hearken back to those *wish I could afford that cool bike* teenage years for many of the classicrendezvousers? Maybe the *bike boom* itself had a little bit to do with it after all?
