If any one could help me with this bike that decided to arrive at my door steps. Wow pictures not justified how awesome it is. Need little help shine some light on year. Has a tag that’s 1913 but not sure. All original color (wow) Seat can’t make out what it is. Also why would it have a red wheel color different from the bike. Never thought I would own a precious bike like this. Awesome bike excited to own. NFS Thanks Luis

Close up on the badge might show an Excelsior pedigree; the Excelsior thread shows a Triumph product line.
Perhaps pre-dating the move to Indiana?

Thought that those 4-heart chain rings were Snyder or DP Harris.
Not sure what an exclusively 'Excelsior' chain ring might look like.

I don’t mind at all. Thank you
Hello again, would you mind measuring the badge for me? It looks like a pretty good size badge. I've been trying to show the badges the actual size
in the book. Thanks again. Barry

i just noticed one of the tires are original to the bike. They are labeled Chicago cycle supply co. as the badge pretty cool i think. I've Been reading a lot and researching on this bike. Thank you all for the nice comments

Did Chicago Cycle Supply build their own bikes? I have a badgeless bike with a frame that is identical to this. I still need to strip the overpaint off, but underneath it is orange with green darts much like some of the Simmons Hardware bikes I've seen photos of.
