The Coolest Place in Iowa

Posted: May 31, 2012 in Uncategorized

The “coolest place in Iowa” might not sound like much of an endorsement, but I must insist that I had a great time at Baxter Cycle yesterday. Not only did I get to test ride two awesome brand-new bikes, but I also got to take a walk through their skunkworks and the vintage bike section. You’ll never guess what I saw back there.

Yes, that is a crappy cellphone pic of a Vincent Black Shadow. The fastest production bike from 1949 to 1973. There’s also a fleet of Norton Commandos, a bunch of 60s Bonnevilles, and a 1938 Speed Twin. There’s a ton of cool stuff back there. If you’re in the neighborhood, it’s worth stopping in just to see some of the classic Brit bikes. The new stuff is pretty impressive too.
