    1922 Mead Ranger

    Not the case; Mead Rangers, and most other Mead models, in fact used 1/2" drive chains.

    1922 Mead Ranger

    They are only original once! She is a beauty and worth every penny. I do understand why you fit the Universal repo tires; if only they were available as were the Elizabethtown originals you'd see a lot more of these early singletube safeties pedaled around the local parks ( but likely none...

    Ladies Toc Sterling

    Ed, I just checked the picture on my website of the ladies Sterling and, sure enough, there was a front fender on the bike. Because it was a down loaded piture from a photgraph I'm unable to enlarge the frame in order see details showing how the fender was attached. It had to be some sort of a...

    Sterling Questions

    1896 bicycle cresent number 4

    Nice find. I bought a ladies Crescent Model No. 10 in about the same condition from a Wheelmen member last year for $500. which included a ladies Christie saddle which I restored and used to replace what was on the Crescent but beyond salvaging. The bike became one of my restoration projects...

    Ladies Toc Sterling

    Ed, How are you? Long time since we last communicated. There is a picture (only one unfortuanately since my computer crashed years ago and took many of my restoration pictures to their final resting place in cyber space ) on my timemachineslimited website. This was one of my early TOC...

    Sold For Sale: Pre-1900 Ladies Crescent Model 10 - Museum quality restoration

    For Sale: Pre 1900 Ladies Crescent Model No.10 - fully restored.

    for sale recently restored 1912 Wonder bike - By Time Machines, Ltd. Frame No. 154866

    Mike, the pattern was derived from a black and white early teens photo of a near identical Wonder bicycle identified on it's reverse side as being being Shapleigh "built" but the date on the headbadge could not be seen in the photo which was taken as a side view. As for the color scheme I could...

    for sale recently restored 1912 Wonder bike - By Time Machines, Ltd. Frame No. 154866

    Hi Mike, Sorry I'm so long in responding to your most informative note. The bicycle in the Luxlow ad is, in fact, the very bike that I restored. For some reason I misplaced or more likely mistakenly tossed the information I had concerning from whom I purchased the bike. I usually keep better...

    for sale recently restored 1912 Wonder bike - By Time Machines, Ltd. Frame No. 154866

    That is very interesting. Considering that by 1912, the year this particular bicycle was produced, the bicycle "boom" at, and just prior to, the turn of the century was pretty much over, it would make sense that Shapleigh Hardware might be able create a lucrative business doing as you suggest...

    for sale recently restored 1912 Wonder bike - By Time Machines, Ltd. Frame No. 154866

    This bicycle, as I received it was an earlier amature restoration that required a complete "do over" which, to me, means a careful, detailed restoration to the same standard I set for my work 35 years ago. The bike is a 1912 Wonder model. I'm not certain of the actual manufacturer however the...

    Crescent Model No. 10 - Help needed

    Fordsnake, Thank you my friend. Analizing the picture you included allowed me to deduce pretty much exactly what I needed; that is what was hidden in the crank housing that I could not see and what the crank puller was desigened and engineered to do. No, unfortunately I didn't have one.....wish...
