    Default This is my first post ever! I have a Spalding 1890's & Chainless Spalding - HELP!


    0 Not allowed!
    I recently received 2 Antique bicycles.
    I know NOTHING about them.
    They are both in pretty good, original condition.
    The Spalding has wooden rims.
    The Tribune has the original seat, and fenders, and some of the decorative string still hanging off the fender hooks.
    Both have nice bicycle emblem plates on them.
    My husband thinks they are in the way.
    I think they are great!
    (American Pickers)
    Do I restore them, do I go someplace special to find buyers for them?
    How do I price them?
    Is there a website? I haven't found much of anything, so I am asking here.
    Can you help?
    I would post pictures, but I'm not sure how. I just registered 5 minutes ago.
    Thanks for any help that is out there.

    The Tribune Bicycle Says "Model 8 " on the badge, if that is any help.

    Theres a fellow here on the Cabe by the name of Walter Branche that loves the older pre 1900 bikes, and sometimes ends up purchasing them. Find his name among the users and send him a private message, he could definitely steer you in the right direction.

    Hi Sam,
    I am not sure how to post photos here.
    If you know how to email me directly, I agreed to that option, I think, please do so, and I will send photos.
    Or if someone will explain the photo process and limitations, I will proceed that way.
    New to all this.....
    Both the Spalding Bros bike and The Tribune bikes are pretty great, andI will take photos in the morning.
    I have been told they are both pre 1900.
    Both have wooden rims and one is a chainless bike.
    That one has the original hand grips and seat.
    Thanks for your inquiry.

    Hi Pepper and welcome to the site. You have found the place for tips, sells or repairs. Pics would be the best way. I can post for you if I get copies. Lol, usually we have the husband/bikes and woman complaints about his collection.

    Wow! A couple of great old bikes. I know virtually nothing about bikes from this era, but they bring a huge smile to my face.

    Thanks for posting the pictures!
