To visit New Haven Bicycles at the corner of Main and Broadway is to visit a museum. Scattered among the new and refurbished bikes are vintage models from the early 1900s, spider bikes from the 1970s and a collection of Schwinns from the 1940s, ’50s and ’60s. Hanging on the wall encased in a shipping crate is a 1927 Elgin. The story, according to shop owners Wes and Vaughn Ulmer, is that its owner packed it in 1947 for a move from Minnesota to Detroit but it was never unpacked or ridden again.
