    Undiscovered Species?! Excelsior Collectors! Have you seen this headbadge?

    I had not seen that one before - (except for your 2 prior posts on Tuesday, in the other threads, Excelsior & Triumph). Excelsior seemed to have various badges, with badge holes in different spacings, (at least the reproductions or others from Indonesia seem to). What is the spacing in-between...

    I don't see any head badge fasteners, perhaps a button-badge or bottle-cap type fastener secures to a hole in the head tube. Those similar but not-so subtly different sprockets make identification challenging. I recently saw a CWC-looking bike in New Hampshire with an extra hole in its head...

    EZ-Off Oven Cleaner on Black Velocity Blunts?

    So, if I plan on re-painting the aluminum rims, I might not have to remove any OEM black paint, already in very good condition?

    Can someone help me determine value of this jc Higgins colorflow?

    The original-post girl's bike was manufactured by Murray. For a thread with similar Murray-built bikes, browse through the following: https://thecabe.com/forum/threads/murray-serial-number-project.7014/ Murray-built bikes may be dated to-the-year, by the alphabetical code stamping on the...

    Can you provide info on this bicycle?

    Looks like aluminum fenders; were the “Airman” bikes sold through Spiegel’s catalogs?

    My Grandfathers Western Flyer

    I like John's chain tread tires.

    yard art, ugh.

    I think the prickly pear cactus is likely there also, just to supplement the chain.

    Prewar Hawthorne Chain Tensioner Help

    I believe that the 0.21875" equals 7/32" or about #12-24. 1/4" = .25" might be too big, and #10 = 0.1875" (e.g., Colson) might be too small. Hope this helps. Huffman also used a square nut, (with mating threads), inside the frame slot - I believe that the frame might not be threaded, and may...

    My Grandfathers Western Flyer

    There are repro tanks that become available now and then, from CWC Roadmaster bikes of the 1990's(?). A repro Roadmaster tank might not be an exact match, but such preferences should depend on the owner. Not too sure about the peculiarities of Western Flyer tanks, e.g., sheet-metal stamping...

    https://thecabe.com/forum/threads/emblem-manufacturing-info.125531/ Emblem bikes that I have seen do have some peculiar parts. The crankset may have oversized threads and cones; the sprocket drive pin may be offset 2 inches. They are an odd size and challenging to obtain - just something to...

    1920's Hawthorne Flyer

    Snyder-built 28" - maybe at the Excelsior Mfg. Michigan City plant, which was closer (as the railroad flies) to Montgomery Ward in Chicago, than the easterly Little Falls NY Snyder Mfg. The serial number may help with a date guestimate; my system starts with an "A" in 1931...

    Help identify this frame

    Classic styling, but maybe not so classic a bike, (yet). Maybe more so at Rat Rod Bikes. http://www.ratrodbikes.com/forum/index.php?threads/show-us-your-worksman-bicycle.33482/ (32-pages). Save the OEM headset cones; (1-5/16" = 33mm).

    CWCTrailblazer

    Need to find the master link, which should look different than the rest, at least on the side with the removable plate. Usually one may open the link by hand, by using straightened chain as leverage, to bend the two pins on the master link closer toward each other, allowing the removable plate...

    Anyone know if this is worth anything

    Nice project bike, looks to be Monark or Murray built. A tank would be a good addition.
