I know "one-post-wonders" are annoying. I'm an antique camera guy so I know how this goes. But hoping you good folks can help me identify this piece. Found on a walk in the desert near Tonopah Nevada where I live. Tonopah began about 1900 so this may be from that time frame.
BTW I do have some bicycle heritage. My mom's second husband was George Garner during the mid 1960's when he was the leading king of Schwinn sales in So. Cal. and then in Northbrook IL. When I was 14 years old I attended the Schwinn training center in Chicago at the old factory and somewhere I have the cerificate of completion. I put literally hundreds of Schwinn's together in that time frame for Mr. Garner. $1.35 an hour baby. These days I have a 1st gen Bianchi "mountain bike" circa 1982 rusting away in the back yard. Even at Valley Cyclery, Bianchi's were always held in very high esteem. Someone stole the wheels on a camping trip so now it sits in the weather, such as it is, in Tonopah.
Thanks for any help. Oh, I left it in the desert. If it's worth a million bucks I hope I can find it twice ;~'))
