Hello, can anyone give me a idea of the aprox value of this bike .. I’ve been told this could be a Reading , a Crown or a Emblem . The stem is broken fork tube and bars are fine. Broken stem piece has been removed . I’m honestly not sure what the bike is have a general idea thanks to other info out there . Really need help on value as I’m considering selling the bike only because I have to many to work on at the moment . Thank you for any help.

Be patient, as there isn't all that much info out there on these frames. Depending on exact year, it could be Reading or Crown. I believe Crown bought them out around 1916 or so. Don't quote me tho, as I'm still learning what I can about my tall 24" frame similar to the one posted above.

There is, however, a little Reading about these bikes here:
