Sacket cycle works

Finally riding a big boys bike

Hey guys. I picked this bike up a couple years ago and am just now getting to it. I believe it’s a 35 Shelby but I’m not sure if there is a specific model name etc. for it. If anyone has some info on it or an old article and such that would be helpful. Thanks

It's a nice bike. An uncommon frame, was available two ways. One had the straight upper rear stays and another had rear stays that were slightly curved.

I'm not sure this one is as old as 35 though. Nor the one in the other referenced thread. The early ones I've seen have raingutter fenders. I also don't see it in any of the Gambles literature I have from 35 and 36. The Eagle badge indicates it was a Gambles distributed bike.

I'd guess this one to be from 37-39. I have seen and have literature showing this frame style in 37, 38, 39 and even as late as October 1940.

Here's a hardware catalog page from 1938 showing this model.

@cds2323 Can you impart any information regarding when the big 26 tooth Phone Dial crank sprockets appeared?

I believe that style crank sprocket (with the round holes) pre dates the balloon tire bikes made by Shelby. I have a catalog from 1930 showing that sprocket on a Flying Cloud badged 28" wheel Shelby. The NBJ Shelby book indicates that sprocket style was introduced in 1926.
