    Very Old Columbia Question

    The piece on the rear axle is the mounting peg. From a modern perspective it's not really necessary, but it was a carry-over from how people were used to mounting a high wheel bike.

    20th Century Bracket Question? Lamp Bracket?

    From the photo, I make out "PAT. APL. DEC...", or patent application, December...

    Csepel Robusta from Hungary-Torrington Components

    The frame of the bike for sale looks the same as mine, but the sprocket is different. But it is similar to those on a few other German and Austrian bikes I have from that period. Are the wheels 28" or 26"? The rear wheel seems to fill the fender properly. Maybe there were models in 28" and...

    Csepel Robusta from Hungary-Torrington Components

    I believe this is a Robusta from the 1950's - 1960's. Its odd seat is actually original, but the handlebars and other parts are changed. I ride a similar Robusta which is a 28" wheel rod-brake roadster like a Raleigh DL-1. A connection to Steyr-Puch of Austria makes sense geographically but...

    Toc Colors

    Here is some bold blue and silver stripe original paint. I don't know the make; there is an unfortunate dent where the head badge was lost. The frame has mono seat and chain stays, and a Fauber crank set. It is otherwise typical late-TOC with oversize thin-wall tubing, internal lugs, and...

    1899-1902 Marion Bicycle Co. Aetna - Original Paint

    Morgan and Wright promoted their "double-tube" tire which was much like a racing sew up. Unlike the single-tube, it had separate inner tube that could be repaired.

    Tandem i.d.

    The cut-out in the bottom bracket often indicates a Fauber or later Fauber-compatible crankset.

    Crawford bicycle poster

    The Maryland Historical Society wants to acquire an original Crawford bicycle poster for its collection and to use in its upcoming exhibit, "Spectrum of Fashion, Celebrating Maryland's Style" (https://www.mdhs.org/exhibitions/spectrum-fashion-celebrating-maryland’s-style). The Society will...

    Please help i.d. this HTS

    It may be a Lovell or Rudge whose frame was lowered. Notice that the current top tube is just a straight tube, and the seat post is a later "7" style post. Such a modification would have been fairly simple and would have dropped the seat a few inches--possibly helpful on a 30" wheel bike.

    Sand Blasted Bike

    Are all your bikes badly and un-authentically restored examples of poor-condition originals? I've built some bikes like that that I ride and love to death, but I don't fool myself that they're worth much money. And I don't want this person to be disappointed if they spray the bike a single...

    Sand Blasted Bike

    I think I see 24" x 2.125" on the tires. That's a child's bike. Are you relatively small, and do you want to ride the bike yourself? It's sounds like you're sentimental about this old bike. It is possible to make it ride-able, but up front you should know how much work it will be, how much...

    Featherstone Duchess 1898

    There were some huge forum threads about Featherstone bicycles on the Wheelmen website a few years ago, but unfortunately that forum recently moved to a new server and the older content isn't available again yet. I kept copies of those forum threads myself and I'll try to upload them either...

    1899 Crescent No. 15 Pin Info

    I can't say for an 1899 model, but the 1900 Crescent catalog states: "The frames and forks are enameled in plain black or olive-green without striping or decoration of any kind." I have a 1900 Crescent model 32 which appears to bear this out. It's black paint looks original and there is no...

    looking for TOC Crescent aluminum chainguard

    Hi! I'm looking for this aluminum chain guard for my wife's 1900 Crescent. Anyone have one? Or something very similar? It was originally painted either black or green and looks somewhat like common steel chain guards from the 1920s, but narrower (I already have one of those). Dimensions...

    Vintage chainguard

    Do you still have this chain guard? If yes, can you tell me its length and diameter around the chain ring? Thanks, Paul
