This is a surviving example, of an 1896 Iver Johnson Model C, “Fitchburg” Ladies Roadster. 1896 was the first year that the Iver Johnson Company built cycles that would carry their own name. The company offered a complete line of “Iver Johnson” badged bicycles and a second line of “Fitchburg”...
Indianapolis - built Bellis women's frame, fork, and crank. What you see is all there is. Note damage to front fork axle area. Celluloid badge insert is interesting. Have the only Bellis in town (or maybe anywhere!). $75 shipped in US 48. PM to claim it. First come, first served.
Finally finished. Kept the nickel plating original, refinished the rims, and gave her a paint job that tries to blend in (not too shiny). A bit difficult to ride, but it does ride well. Was a very fun project and worth every minute and every penny.
What do you think?
I have way too many projects so I’ve decided to sell my Crescent. Asking $1100 plus shipping. The pedals and seat in the pics are not original to the bike and not part of the sale. This is a beautiful bike!
I recently acquired this 1896 Comet. It rides very nicely on new Stutzman wood rims with metal inserts, and a first year Eclipse Morrow hub brake in place of the original fixie hub. With a 25 1/2 inch frame getting on and off takes some practice. The funny thing is, this is the medium size...
