Ah, but they get you on shipping

bicycle“For one dollar with order we ship bicycles to any address subject to approval.”

This ad from the May 7, 1903 Chatham Record makes it look like the bike costs one dollar with a negligible shipping fee of $10.95. By that math, a $300 bike would cost $3585 with shipping.

Good thing I got that backward.
