    Sold 1933 Colson flyer second earliest example known

    When the rear fork axle fitments look unused like that, it must be low mile...put away dry. My own "3J" serial number 26" moto is the earlier one Pat mentions.

    What bike did you ride today?

    Ignored the old bike thing and rode the Carbon Ibis SL today. Soon to be retired as my backup ride with over 5000 miles of hard use on it. Rained hard last night so the dirt was perfect.

    What bike did you ride today?

    Thanks dnc1! Yes Darren, they are tricky because if you turn the bars before getting your knees out of the way, the long bar forces the grips into your knees and legs and this can take you down. If you have to turn sharply, you have to stop pedaling and stick your knees waaaay outboard...

    Is there something evil in my tire?

    I think we should blame China! China is not in good standing with americans as of late. China provides to us unvetted products they constantly foist upon us knowing americans will keep buying.. The tires Sven, could be from "China" like the covid-19 ?!?!?!.:p Maybe this could be another...

    Looking for help in identifying bike from 1935....

    If your fork measures 14.5" which it seems to read on your tape(center of axle to lower truss plate) then it looks like a 26"-er. Your seat tube measurement is spot on 19" like my 26"er. Your other measurement(chain stay) should be from the Bottom bracket (crankset) shell center back towards...

    What bike did you ride today?

    Is there something evil in my tire?

    No, but you rides a lot of miles and run high pressures. Everything eventually fails, especially tires. How many miles you think Sven?

    Early Elgin tank bicycle

    Michigan City Excelsior built Elgin. Freeze damaged tube could be massaged back and brazed closed, but the rest of the frame looks 2b not too bad. Cool old Elgin that has seen some use... Edit: fantastic images, thank you.

    Help Identify

    @Archie Sturmer ---asked once before on another thread about the volcano joinery timeline. @piercer_99 's "Trailblazer Motorbike" he now has up and running has distinct volcano BB joinery. Late 20's/early 30's Snyder made most likely but your machine here @JimRoy does not seem to have that...

    Looking for help in identifying bike from 1935....

    Colson, in the mid-1933 year, joined the 26" clincher bandwagon, but continued to make the 28' wheeled cycles as well during this year. I wonder when they stopped making the 28" frames? @Phattiremike 's 1933 bike above is a 28-er and my 1933 bike is a 26-er, and the serial numbers are very...
