Welcome to a new week and to a new theme here at the OTSG: Cottered Crank Week! And these Cottered Cuties are not your garden variety OTS either, we’ve got some very cool OTSG Firsts coming up so stay tuned.
Today’s cottered selection is, surprisingly, not an OTSG First but a Bavarian beauty nonetheless. This is Ed H’s Kalkhoff Super Sport in everyone’s favorite pose: the backsidagarägdorotype.
Here is my latest find a Kalkhoff Super Sport which I was able to
obtain for a mere $20! I found it in a yard on the side of the road
and snatched it up quickly. It proudly boasts that it is made in West
Germany in many places on the frame. It was ridable, but had some
issues so I am in the process of tearing it down. Not a lot on these
old Kalkhoff that I was able to find on the internet, but I am in
correspondence with a person at Kalkhoff and I hope to have more
information to share soon.
Thanks again Ed
