the fact decal rather than badge and small chainring , may mean 1894, checked photos of 95 and 96 both had different chainrings and had badges. Anyway enjoy it is so cool.

Any ideas on the maker of the seat? Appears to be nickel plated with an unusual front adjustment. V/r Shawn

So after a little more research the Wheelmen site lists a few mfg for Eclipse bicycles but only one out of Elmira, NY 1895-99. I wonder if the serial # 2 5 176 could be either Model or month (2), year 1895 (5) and sequence number (176)? V/r Shawn

Shawn, Maybe wheelmen library has cataloge, Bill Smith is librarian. I does not look like the Eclipse brake was ever added to frame, not sure when that was invented or added as an accessory?

Thanks I started the process to renew my Wheelmen account this morning. I hadn't signed in for about four years so I guess I was dropped! TOC isn't really my thing so as soon as I figure out what the stuff is I'm moving it along. V/r Shawn

I contacted Bill Smith sent photos along to compare any cataloge he might have of Eclipse.
