    Tire Recommendations (Modern)

    I like the Schwalbe Marathon variant of tires (e.g., HS-420), various widths with the retro-reflective side stripes. If price is the principal factor, I sort my searches by lowest price, S&H and taxes. Bell's Bike Shop in Philadelphia PA may be a nearby shipping point...

    Is this Hawthorne Motobike worth $225?

    Generally, looks like a Great Western Mfg. La Porte Indiana product. Upon closer examination of the top of the bottom bracket, we see special custom aftermarket flanged cups; likely to fit an undersized 45mm Fauber (threaded?) bracket. Perhaps a past conversion, from a 45mm threaded-BB/1-piece...

    Truss Frame I.D. Help Please!

    I believe that Snyder may be the manufacturer; and agree with E.C. Simmons badges most likely. Not sure if Miami made bikes for Simmons as well, maybe prior to Snyder, or if they used the same or similar badges(?)...

    What bike did you ride today?

    1930-H Westfield built motorbike (maybe Hawthorne) slapped together this afternoon. Rode to the fire station and back.

    Help - Ladies Elgin - Late 20's - Early 30's...?

    A 1st step may be to try to identify the manufacturer for the Sears Elgin, such as Excelsior or Westfield. Both may have used serial number prefix letters which correspond to a year (not shown). Westfield had a unique seat post clamp (not shown). The extra 1+1/2” of head tube, above the top...

    What is it? 24"

    Post war “fits sooner” safety frame; a design used from the late 1940’s to the late 1950’s. The “3H” (Huffman) serial number prefix indicates a 1953 year for the juvenile bicycle. May have worn a “Huffy” badge.

    Help identifying TOC bicycle.

    The chainring sprocket reminds me of one seen in @catfish's workshop pictures. https://thecabe.com/forum/threads/sprocket-compilation-pic-heavy.41683/page-2#post-235657 Dikeman had a ToC patent 29,450 on the double-D drive, that was picked up by Colonel Pope. The sideways serial numbers remind...

    Help Identifying Parts

    Looks like a lot of old fenders. The plan to not give them away makes sense if one has the storage space. Shipping bulky items might sometimes be costly. Some of the fenders might be sized for old 26” or 27” lightweight tires and wheels; and curves are hard to measure. When selling...

    Why is it MY Fault....

    Maybe use a bicycle bell to warn of approaching on a trail; and during the yelling one might pretend not to hear — because of all the loud horn honking noise(?). Bicycle accessories have their function, as do pedals.

    Please help me identify two bicycles

    The light blue also looks like a Westfield built; possibly a Sears Elgin. With 26” balloon tires, it is likely early-middle 1930’s, (just prior to Sears beginning to also purchase from Murray Ohio). Of the two, I like the style of the better-preserved light blue; but both examples are old...

    Fender struts on a 40's Shelby flyer.

    I believe that the fender braces were a later Shelby design; not too functional, perhaps to compete with the CWC scuff guards.
