Another please help i.d. 2 bikes post

Both bikes don't have badge wholes, but again, they could be hidden under paint or filled with dirt
Bikes got caught in a rain storm before I could unload them.

Guesses are :

1. Eagle
2. Miami Cycle made arch bar, possibly : Hudson

Thanks for the help guys!

thanks for refreshing my memory Mike, I knew I had seen that chainring somewhere, and it was in my garage in between all my other Eagle badged bikes !!!
I even have another repainted copy of this bike ..... I guess this is what happens when you have one too many bicycle or project.

[QUOTE="tripple3, post: 936920, memb ...... Those chain stays have almost un-limited front chain ring size limit [/QUOTE]

@tripple3 .... I totally agree. Some of my favorite early
machines have no dog-leg in the chainstays. Even
my OCD moves me to acquire oversize and beautiful
chainrings, to be placed on orphan frames having no
dog-legs in the chainstays.


Now .. at the risk of offending locomotion.... allow me
to present but a few Miami-Built frames ... solely for
the porpoise of edumacation ......


None of these frames belong to me.

@locomotion I will remove this particular entry at
your command.

Why would I get offended Patric? You have been more than helpful. Any input is appreciated. I was clueless about the arch frame bicycle and now at least I have something to go on. I actually bought this one because : 1. Seller made me do it. :) 2. I could use the back wheel and stem on other projects.
So please keep offending me. It's only helping me learn more.
Thanks.

Shortly after Colonel Albert A. Pope entered the bicycle industry with his brand known as the Columbia, he began acquiring patents. He filed multiple lawsuits against rival bicycle makers and producers for infringements, then would agree to drop the suits in exchange for a royalty fee. By the late 1890s nearly every US bicycle manufacturer was paying Pope around $10 per bicycle!

Pope leverage his staggering wealth into the Pope Manufacturing Company and at the height of the bicycle craze, his company was producing about a quarter million bicycles annually.

So, your question, who owned the Double D patented? Charles Dikeman filed for the patent in 1898…but I suspect the Pope Manufacturing Company acquired it.
