Nice. Would you mind sharing the serial number on the BB shell with us? And, do you believe the Flying Cloud badge is OG?

Well, being it is a very early Shelby, no one can say. I am currently compiling a list of frames with numbers Pre-40 to see if there is anything to count on. This is one cool ride! A 26 clincher ballooner made by Shelby in 1933 would be sweet...

EDIT!! Not saying 33, just sayin if it WAS, then you would have something...how do you get 1935?

Also … here is a small catalogue section of the earliest
Shelby wishbone-frame streamline. Ethernet find.


I no longer have any Shelby lit.

@Oldnut ('s) machine was not in this catalog when
I owned my copy of it.

So how early are the non wishbone frames ? Thanks
======================================

Ron … you fortunate son of a biscuit eater ...

I would love to know the answere to your question …
being an owner of a single-example of one of these
interesting frames.


BTW … your complete example .. with the bar-ends
lowered from your previous choice of bar-end angles ...
well … .makes smee a wee bit slaphappy … hab thought
of buildingding the frame of your kind (that I have) .. then
reality rears its ugly noggin .. and I go all, ''What the hay …
i'm 72 years old … I can barely orchestrate an effective
bowel movement …... ''.


Do I really need one of these or am I just a fish swimmin'
in the High Seas … wishin' I knew how to avoid ending up
in a can of ''Bumble Bee'' tuna ?

THIS bike has me falling down and squirming around smitten like a child in love again....Brain case opened up and all my brains fell out when I 1st saw it. Of course, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. AND the new/old wheels!!!!-oh boy....oh my. I would pay to ride it, no doubt.

Love my 38 Shelby Flying Cloud. Has wishbone top bar and deep wall fenders. The frame geometry is absolutely perfect. Excellent riding characteristics and bars fall perfectly to my hands.
