In the 50ies the amount of cars in the streets grew ever faster, and soon even the bike messengers were stuck in traffic. The first picture shows a couple of inventions John came up with, inspiring messenger bikes for years to come. The narrow handlebars and sleek desing is made for low maintenance and good manouverability in tight traffic.

The next picture is showing John with his first bicycle. Please note that he got rid of the habit of smoking the pipe when he started racing a few years later.

The last picture is showing Johns first race bike from 1958. He spent a small fortune on it, but it was worth it as it seemed.
