Hello!
Let me tell you a little about myself. My step father was Ralph Beldon the inventer of the Swing Bike! The Idea was conceived due to my 5TH Birthday where my step dad invisioned the Idea while restoring a Stingray Bicycle for my birthday. After intoducing it to me and watching the amazing ability of the bike to correct itself with the balance of the rider, He new that this was a fantastic and exciting invention! He then called on a close personal freind (phillip) to come down for a visit to Cascade Locks Oregon for a showing and discusion on marketing this idea.For me this was the only bike to ride! Ralph then built 2 more for my older brothers Joe and John, Before long we all had mastered the bikes. We could ride a wheely for three blocks, turn on a dime, Ride curves with the front wheel on the curb and the rear tire on the road! With investers now starting to get in line, It was decided it would be worthwhile to move closer to my dad's freind Phillip who lived in Spokane Washington. From there we toured bike shows in the late 70's in Las Vegas, Sacramento and Palm Springs. The idea was a beautiful thing, it was the Difficulty of marketing, Manufacturing and dealing with investors that ended up to be the downfall of the Invention. Needless to say I am 40 years old now and due to this bicycle I had a great childhood! I have 3 Swingbikes that were built by Ralph that have a Bonneville Manufacturer label on them. Would you or anybody you know be interested in them. They are different due to they do not lock like those man. in Tiawan. I have One that is a miniture 26" (approx) and orange. Please contact me If interested!
Sincerly Jeff Moorhead
