Hello folks,

New to this and trying to deal with my grandparents' bikes that I'm pretty sure are from some time between 1929 and 1942. They've been in their basement for decades on the original tires and right now I have them hanging upside down from the ceiling of my front porch. I have some closeup photos of the decals on the central post below the seat.

Looks like a surprising amount of the original finish has survived. Interesting bikes!

Thanks,
I know my grandmother and grandfather were both happy to use them when they were dating back in '41. I believe my great grandfather purchased my grandmother's for her as a 16th or 17th birthday present which should make the girls bike '37 or '38 but it might have been used. I might also have the birthday wrong. My grandfather apparently purchased his just so he could ride with my grandmother when they started dating but once again it may have been used. They both worked in Trenton or the Luscome Airplane company.
