The fact that they are selling a "Classic 1953" means little. I could make a Heron "Classic 1953." but that would not mean that there were Herons being built in 1953. Here is Felt Bicycles "1903" complete with all white tires: <http://www.feltracing.com/05_cruiser/2005_1903.html>. I wonder if that is their original logo. ;-)
