Styria Chainless ca. 1913

This is a Styria Dürkoppwerke Graz Chainless path racer bicycle. I suppose it was produced in 1913 (due to the framenumber), although i didnt find a copy of the 1913 catalog until today. The very characteristic Dürkopp gear and shaft assembly was maybe built by Dürkopp in Germany and works very well. The bike has a sloping top tube frame and some very nice etchings on it, like most of Styrias bicycles had in those days. It is fitted with 26 inch wheels with wooden rims, original Styria Dürkopp rat-trap pedals, cork grips. The color is still original.
