Bicycle Museum of America

Look Ma, No Hands!
Good afternoon!

I was hoping that someone here could help me with a research request that the museum had recently. A patron is looking for information on "The Arcade Fileworks". Supposedly he has had little luck finding information on them, only that they produced bicycles from 1895-~1901, and made the "Dixie" and "Elk" models. Does anyone have any additional information I can pass on?

I found all of these references online. Please share with your patron. It would be great if you could post some photos of the bicycle they have for future reference.
