It`s been a few years since he “lost possession” of it, but Mongo has recovered his Aero Delivery bike. This bike isn`t just another messenger bike, it is a piece of SF messenger history. Aero Delivery was a local delivery company that a lot of the old timers had worked for at one point or another. These Aero tank bikes were built in the city specially for Aero Delivery. These are not like any other bike you`ll see on the streets today. They`re built for one purpose, to deliver cargo. I hear that they used to have trailers that folded into hand carts to move around the heavy stuff. It`s good to see it back on the road. If anyone has more info about the bikes or Aero Delivery that they want to share, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
