Reader Beryl B reached out to me with a Guess That Bike conundrum that I did not know the answer to. Can you do better than I did?
In Beryl’s words: “My Dad owns this little bike. He bought it in a lot with a Cushman 53A, and two Tote Goats. We can’t find any name or markings other than the numbers 69641 on the neck of the frame.
The motor had a serial number, I suspect it is a Craftsman. There is a placard on the gas tank that identifies the bike as property of the USDA – Forestry Service. The speedometer is marked A. Rolle Milano. The grips are marked Grantourismo EX Rally.
He is planning to sell it, but I really want to keep it. I’m hesitant to take it without knowing what I’m getting in to.”
