  1. The Carolina Rambler

    Which Colson would you keep?

    I personally think the red one is prettier and more classic looking and is my favorite, but the bull nose model is harder to come by and might could fetch a higher price. Hard choice.

    What Colson model is this?

    That is one of the nicest earlier model Colsons I have ever seen. She is a real beaute! If there is one thing I have learned about these earlier Colson bikes, especially those built around '35 and earlier, is that they are not very standardized. There were many badges they used depending on...

    1920 elgin paint code?

    Hello! I have a bicycle like yours that I plan on restoring here in the future, so I have been doing some research into its original paint color as well. From what I have gathered, a lot of these early 20s Elgins are Red and Cream, sometimes Red and Black. Others maybe all red with some...

    Found a Prewar Rollfast Bicycle in the Middle of the Woods Today

    Absolutely. I would definitely agree that they are invasive upon reading up on them more since starting this post- but perhaps only in certain regions/ climates. I did read some articles, from places like the Pacific Northwest, and down in Louisiana, and it does seem to be quite a big problem...

    Found a Prewar Rollfast Bicycle in the Middle of the Woods Today

    Definitely. Something like using is as a wall hanger or similar use would be a great idea.

    Found a Prewar Rollfast Bicycle in the Middle of the Woods Today

    Looks to me like they might take down every tree over 10 inch diameter. Anything of commercial value. I don't really know who's land that is, or if or when the logging might happen, but there have been marking teams and surveyors out here lately. There has been a big logging boom throughout...

    Found a Prewar Rollfast Bicycle in the Middle of the Woods Today

    I believe for now I will leave it where it sits so that I can go and see it from time to time on a walk. I question though if there are plans to log that wilderness. I hope not, but there are signs that it could go down, in which case if that unfortunately happens I will bring it home...

    Found a Prewar Rollfast Bicycle in the Middle of the Woods Today

    An update. I have learned that these plants are Italian Arum of Western Europe. So not native, but not invasive. Really pretty, I think I will collect a few plants for around the house, and being as they are non native, I will be able to do this in good conscience knowing that I will not be...

    Found a Prewar Rollfast Bicycle in the Middle of the Woods Today

    Yes, every typical spring bulb and flower around here in Western North Carolina is blooming, like daffodils and yellow bells and whatnot. And it is doing so earlier than I have ever seen previously; each year has progressively been earlier and earlier for about the last 5 or 10 years. I figure...

    Found a Prewar Rollfast Bicycle in the Middle of the Woods Today

    Hello everybody. I went out on a nature walk today and encountered something unexpected. A 1930s prewar Rollfast bicycle! I was in a stand of old woods dating back probably to the 1800s. I saw some colonies of wildflowers and I went over closer to take a look. There, amongst the colonies of...

    1909 Corbin Duplex Model 9 Coaster Brake Hub - Unobtanium

    Hi Jesse! You might can provide me some insight. I have a Corbin Duplex Model 8 bicycle hub. Do you know what years they made that hub from? I've always wondered about its possible age, reckoned it was 1910 or so. Thank you!

    1891-1895 Pneumatic & Crusty - Can Anyone i.d.?

    Just like everyone above stated, this bicycle is very much savable and restore-able completely. It will be a challenge and very time consuming, won't be cheap, but definitely worth it. This will be a fine bike to ride once its finished. Not too many of these left around still, and not easy to...

    1917 Mongomery Ward's Deluxe Flyer Tank Bike - Starting a Restoration

    Yep! This is the northern Michigan bike. I was hoping it would get sold locally, but it is pretty rough, and his price was getting close to top of the mark for something like this. I reckon that's why it didn't sell sooner. But I just had to have it! Luckily we were able to negotiate a...

    1917 Mongomery Ward's Deluxe Flyer Tank Bike - Starting a Restoration

    Hello everybody. I've been wanting to show yall this for a while, and I have finally managed to pull together all the missing pieces I need to do a complete restoration. I can't imagine that there are too many of these still left around. This is a very early "tank bike", one of the earliest I...
