    A Charlie Cunningham Bicycle Archive

    Charlie Cunningham has made about 175 bicycles (so far), and in an attempt to catalog as many of the bikes known to exist today, I put together this archive. If you know of a bike not listed, please contact me so that we can add to the archive, or if you own one of the photos and would like it removed, please contact me. In some cases, bikes that are known to exist are listed without a photo that might not have been made public.

    Archive at: Cunningham Photos - Vintage MTB Workshop

    A few examples,

    A bike by any other name is still a bike.

    That's how I feel about his Ham site being down for almost two years. What a disservice. :P

    It would be great to have a better photo of G and any of the bikes already shown.

    I found this one just the other day. (How often can a person say that?)

    It doesn't appear to be "hiding," but I didn't see it in your photos upon quick perusal.

    Nylon straps, tucked in (!!), plastic clips, seat qr closed very un-Charlie like, modern water bottle, short head tube, and #010 gets no love?

    Very nice stash of pics, DC.

    Good eyes Shawnw.....this was one-off production....Stevie and Charlie specifically placed the braze on after the customer supplied the rack for a true custom fitting.

    I do actually. It's toward the bottom of the gallery, with photo credit given to you. I know who owns it, but not the serial number. I'm guessing it is somewhere around #40.

    I also don't know the serial number of the cross bike you posted that is owned by Gravy Wheels.

    I never knew Charlie made cargo bikes.
    Seek: Koski Trailmaster. Breezer Series 2, or 3. Fillet brazed Ibis Custom. Cunningham Racer. Otis Guy (but not that softride model). That's all I need I don't need anything else... except... except for an old Mountain Goat bar stem combo. And that's all I need. I don't need anything else. Except.....
