    Hey all, looking for someone who knows!
    I found a bike that says Rutledge Cycle Corp of New York, it has an old Bike license sticker that says 1966-67 but i can't find this company anywhere. no bikes on ebay, nothing from a Google or other searches either. Anyone who may have some info on this elusive corp i sure would appreciate it of course.

    Thanks
    T.

    I don't have a recoglection of the Rutledge Brand but from the photo it appears to be an American produced 26 x 1 3/8 LtWt bike produced by one of the following factories: Chain Bike Corp, Stelber, or Huffy. Freddy Wilkins in NY might be able to hit it on the head.

    I know this is an old thread but I figured since I just found 2 of these bikes, I would ad to it.

    As you can see they have seen their better days. They are basically just yard art now. I still think they are cool looking. :D

    Anyone ever figure out more info on this brand of bike? I didn't see much on the web.

    Those are English built. The one has a Hercules (if I remember right) sprocket and the other looks like Raleigh built for another name sprocket. Forks on both look Raleigh built also.
