    A few weeks ago, my boyfriend and his friend were riding their ATV's through the sandpits and woods between Fitchburg & Lunenburg, MA. They took a pit stop and noticed these 2 bicycles leaning up against a tree in the middle of nowhere, not even near a trail or anything! They had obviously been there for a number of years. Both have wooden rims. The first is a Racycle. The second and a little worse for the wear is a Butler Company Record which has a flowery design all over the frame. I believe they are from the early 1900's but I am having a tough time finding any information on either bicycle. The Racycle has an antique padlock on it. The padlock just has a Superman-looking symbol on it. I have many more pictures. We just want to get an idea of what they are, how old they are, and how much they're worth as-is.

      The one on the left is in exelant shape for being out in a sandpit. It looks drivable but I would get differant rims because of risk of damaging the wood ones. Great find

      I know this is 4 years ago - but the Butler Record was built in Butler Indiana by the Butler Company between around 1890 to 1910. Do you still have the bicycle?
