Jobst Brandt’s bike in the US Bicycling Hall of Fame

Jobst Brandt’s bike shortly after restoration in late 2011.

Jobst Brandt’s last bike, built by Peter Johnson, is on display at the United States Bicycling Hall of Fame in Davis, Calif.

It was faithfully restored in 2011: Dave Prion, assembly and parts; Peter Johnson, frame alignment and other visual blemishes, parts; Painting, D&D Cycles.

Everything on it is original to what Jobst used on trips through the Alps, especially the Carradice saddlebag with the custom-built seat mount. It has an Avocet 50 cyclometer.

I’m happy to see that the bike has found a good home where people can check it out along with many other bicycle artifacts on display at the 8,000 square foot building located in Central Park.
