The Wright Cycle Company

The historic note on the Wright Bros. first flight brought to mind that they were first known for their bicycles.  I always wondered if the bicycle in this wonderful scene from Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid was a Wright bicycle,



Here's a page on the cycle company.  Here's another page with wonderful photos from the Wright Bros. archives, including their signature Van Cleve bicycle.
