Vintage bicycle vs hi-tech bicycle – everyone has a preference. If you are a vintage bicycle-type we have good news for you. Will Leather Goods from Eugene, Oregon, unveiled two new vintage models from their one-of-a-kind-series. The Will Easy Rider inspired Black Bicycle sports an old-fashioned Schwinn Panther bicycle frame and the Will Woodstock inspired Hippie Bicycle is based on a frame of a vintage Hawthorne. These two wheeler are third and fourth in a seven bike collection named One-of-a-kind.
Each bicycle design is inspired by the moments and events of years gone by. Be nostalgic and celebrate those hippie and happy moments of your life with a ride on a Will bicycle. “Both Woodstock and Easy Rider were, for me, about dreaming and imagination. The design of these bicycles brings that nostalgia to our fans while showcasing our leather craftsmanship,” says Will Adler.
Each one-of-a-kind bicycle retail for $10,000 and available for purchase at Will Leather Goods store FOUND in Portland, OR and online at Will Leather Goods website.
The Will Easy Rider is crafted using the frame of a vintage Schwinn Panther bicycle. The work is intricately detailed using black vegetable tanned domestic leather and finished with metal studding. Adding to the detail is a custom leather weaving kit that is affixed to the leather-wrapped handlebars. The fenders of the bicycle are made of chrome and the pedals are made of stacked natural vegetable tan burnished leather, the same used for the seat. The rider is finished with two detachable leather bags.
The Will Woodstock is crafted using the frame of a vintage Hawthorne bicycle. The bicycle is reimagined with colorful waxed thread details hand-woven onto the frame. The bridle leather seat feature integrates custom woven textile detail, which carries through to the rear bicycle seat and in the attached weaving kit. The Deerskin leather fringing adds rich colors and classic detailing to the handles. The fringe work is carried over to the affixed one-of-a-kind WILL saddlebag crafted of bridle leather trimmed, hand loomed textiles with deerskin.
