    From what I can tell the paint on the fork and the frame are the same. It's hard to get a pic of it but you can make out the red diamond and the darts on the top tube with the same gold pinstripe as the fork.

    That's really interesting about the fork. I haven't pulled the cranks yet. I think the cranks have actually been swapped out, they look like a later version. I think the chainring might be original though.

    Aerocycle rides again...

    You are right, that's what I get for going off of memory, it's a 35/36

    Prewar straightbar

    I picked this bike up today for a good deal. The locking fork has a key and works good. The wheelset is off of an Elgin. It's definitely missing most of the parts, but I kind of like how it looks. Under the crappy respray it looks like the bike was black with red darts and gold pinstripping...

    Aerocycle rides again...

    ...at least what is left of it. I picked up this 1935/36 aerocycle frame last year not knowing what it was, but i knew it was old and thought it was interesting. Pretty surprising that it turned out to be an aerocycle. The odds of me actually putting it back together as a complete bike are...

    Withdrawn 35/36 Aerocycle frame

    1935/36 aero cycle frame, asking $800 obo. Not a frame that pops up too often. The serial is h2334. The only parts I have are the frame and crankset. I do have the bearings and parts for the bb, they just aren’t in the picture. The frame had been brazed on the top tube and I cleaned that up. It...

    Iver Johnson Truss

    @Duchess @anders1 - The bike has definitely been spray canned and then it looks like the white darts were painted on by hand. It doesn't come across in the pictures but the paint is navy blue and has a lot of runs in it. In a few places that it has chipped away I am seeing black paint, and...

    Iver Johnson Truss

    Thanks to everyone for the info, comments, and suggestions! I had a few spare minutes to day so I took off the badges and with some paint stripper I took off the paint on the headtube. Sure enough there is plating under there, and in quite good shape. There's a small amount of plating loss, a...

    Iver Johnson Truss

    I picked up this Iver Johnson yesterday and I'm pretty excited about it. I've wanted one of these for a while and I've never seen one come up locally. I'm not particularly knowledgeable about these, but I've been reading up on them. Bike has definitely been repainted a dark blue over what...

    The End... Well, for this one anyway!

    I like them both. I have one of those Girvin forks sitting around.

    Is this an aerocycle frame?

    I have a set of stamped 37 cranks that I will probably use for now. These ones still have part of the pedal welded in and both of the holes are pretty seriously ovaled with no threads left. I'll clean them out and see if I can get them tapped, but they might just get hung on the wall.
