    Was Miami cycle & Mfg. the only company using this configuration on the front fender bracing or were there others that used it? aaece7991c55439af5e9bb90758f315e.jpg

    You see the double front brace on mead rangers. I believe schwinn built...or Westfield...don’t know my rangers good enough. But still double front brace. D220FA80-966A-4F51-8C69-BD2CB264C3A1.jpeg

    I just bought this picture on eBay, I'm thinking it looks like Merkel by the frame geometry. It was listed as an Iver. Also has a sweetheart chainring. I'll post better pics when I get it in my hands. cfe4fb02936b66d363258790955fbcda.jpg

    The mead braces swoop up at where it attaches to the axel.

    My international stamping fenders, which I believe Miami used have these braces. Can get better pics tomorrow if interested....Yes the mead rangers are different at the bottom.

    1916 to 1917 would be a guess
