Interesting bike with an interesting name. V. Appelham on Heath Ave. NY. Check out photos on this site.

Let me know your thoughts on this one, you BVVW guys, c'mon show your stuff. One of your own calls."

Ray, "Appelhans" is considered by many to be "The Master" of the time (20's and 30's). At least Al Eisentraut said so in an interview in Bicycle Guide back in the mid 80's. He mentioned how no one even remembered Appelhans. I'd sure like one. All ya had to do was ask Ray.
