    How to disassemble the crank on a Crescent No.11 1898?

    Thanks, looks just like I would like to make - seems to be 13/16"-26 TPI from the limited measure I can make inside the pedal arm? Could you please confirm?

    How to disassemble the crank on a Crescent No.11 1898?

    I wasn't paying attention yesterday when I looked at it - there are actually threads for a puller inside the pedal arm - does anybody know the thread, so I can make me a puller?

    How to disassemble the crank on a Crescent No.11 1898?

    I've found a 1898 Crescent No.11 that seemingly hasn't been used the last 90+ years, but still looks OK enough to be back on the road with a little service and new tires. Here comes an obstacle - I don't know how to take the crank apart without damage to the parts? No place to put a puller.. I...

    Withdrawn 1890s Alvah up dated pictures

    Lovely bike :) This Sears Acme Queen from 1898 is very similar, maybe the Alvah could be a year or two older? https://thecabe.com/forum/threads/1898-sears-acme-queen.42344/

    Replacing Schwinn script front hub bearing cups

The heat from the weld tried to expand the cup, but...

    "The Field" Model 14

    Has anyone seen one of these or maybe period ads? It's "The Field" Model 14 from Marshall Field & Co, Chicago, and I suppose it's from the years around 1900, but about what year? Was the steel rims and the coaster hub standard, so it's from this side of 1900, or could those parts have been...

    Here's pictures of three of my ND brake arms. Tried to search but couldn't find any pictures of what hub the "Racer" arm came from? The text on the upper left arm says "Swedish patent Nr 10415"

    Arlington, Chicago from the "Cash Buyers Union" - who has some info?

    Hi, I have an old US bike called Arlington from Chicago. According to the Wheelmen's list they were produced 1895-98 and mine with a frame number at 107,000 should be late in production, I suppose? Does anyone have another bike like it or any litterature / ads to share or sell? What was the...
