I have an old bike

Looking for information on an older artistic bike. Itís a Walther Westminster. It could be for radball also. Iím not able to put a picture up until I have more posts. Maybe I can send some images by email to someone who knows about this type of bicycle. Thank you

Artistic cycling is a UCI sanctioned competitive disipline dating back to the very late 1800s and roughly comparable to figure skating on two wheels.

Artistic cycling bicycles would have very limited appeal and consequently are very hard to value. Link to OP's photos:https://www.bikeforums.net/g/user/521585

Wow... I have to say this is one of the coolest bikes I have ever seen. Something about the headtube and fork rake combo is making the inner hipster in me GIDDY!

I would A-B-S-O-L-U-T-E-L-Y restore this bike and and convert it into a proper fixed gear. Safe? Maybe not. Most bada** thing on the road? YES.

Reminds me of the old bicycle acts of a 1930s big tent circus.

What is coolest?

a) the super-tiny cranks?
b) the semi-banana bike seat?
c) those bars?

May not be the right bike for riding back drunk from your neighbour's......
