Well I thought I had a real chance at getting this bike. Come to find out I was a little short. The bike is not listed for sale and probably won’t be till about March. I was asking a few Cabers what a fair price to offer for it, but evidently I was pretty far off. The local guy thinks it will bring 3500-4500 on eBay as it sits. I guess we will find out in a few months but I was able to get a few pics so I thought I would share:)

Dreaming price! He may get a few grand if he’s willing to ship int’l, which he won’t be.

Womp Womp, good try though!

I asked him if he’s ever shipped a bike before and he said no. So I’m thinking he won’t ship over seas.

Looks like it was repainted years ago.
Definitely repaint. The wheels have a severe war that you can’t really see in the pics as well. All the plating was painted silver years ago as well.

Not sure about the desirability of shaft drive bikes but his valuation seems high for a repaint. That and the fact that the the plating is painted just kills it for me. I like original paint.

It is fascinating that it is shaft drive with a brake. The suspension is an interesting feature as well.

When i was there I offered him 2k. Me figuring it might be worth 2500. Figured I could get it a little cheaper since he wouldn’t have to pay fees and he wouldn’t have to ship. So if someone wants me to offer 3k for it I’ll pick it up and ship it if he accepts it.

eBay prices are only realized on eBay :) - I think @Jesse McCauley is right on, there is a much higher demand for shaft drives overseas to higher end collectors. I haven't seen that sort of interest to pull 2k+ here. Mike Cates has a world class collection of pristine bikes like this for sale on eBay for 3500-4500 and they sat a long time (may still be there).

With the G&J rim design it is almost impossible to find tires to fit those rims. At least I think I am right.

Appears to be a 1901 New Departure hub, with the stubby arm....
It's a Pope Coaster Brake. Cool hub but way to many parts that screw together, Don't think they were made by New Departure, since the completely different braking system and floating bearing engagement clutch. Can be a Correct Option on a pope so Possibly a ABC Rambler.

Bump it up. I just contacted the local guy to see if this bike will still be put on eBay this month and he said it should be by the end of the month. He has extremely High hopes for this bike. I’m hoping no one jumps on his crazy price so I can afford it! :)
