Someone is guilty of bicycle identity theft. At a point in time someone said to themself " I don't need this bike, just its aura of truth ".

The tire is a Hartford, CT company and the wrench was made in Worcester, MA so I was thinking it was made in the New England area

Based on construction I'm quite certain that this bike was produced between the 1895-1897 time period. The front brake mechanism rod passing through the center of the handle bar stem, the unique chain guard, sprocket and frame construction will be some of the major clues that will help with positive identification. It's a crime that someone removed the nameplate.

There is not a glut of serious badge collectors within this hobby.

Never has been.

The serious badge collectors that I know (including myself) who
remove a badge from a frame ... do so only to frames that have
absolutely no chance of being resurrected.

The Badge Is The Soul Of The Bicycle.

I have owned more than a few frame / fork carcasses that have
badges still attached ... if someone asks to buy the carcass, the
badge goes with it.

Same goes for whole bicycles with their badges still attached ...
if I absolutely MUST possess the particular badge ... I will offer
to buy the whole machine.


There are numerous ways a badge can be missing from it's initial
place of residence. How many machines have been found in
housepaint ... with badges removed to lessen the stress of paint-
trimming around it ... a screw gets lost ... the badge never gets
re-placed.

Am pretty sure those readers out there with just modest critical-
thinking skills can think of other ways a badge can come to be
absent from where it was placed at the factory ....


And on how many occasions did I (or You) happen to stumble-upon a
wonderful frame / fork carcass that is to our liking ... only to find the
saddle is missing ... or, the handlebar is missing ... or grips missing ...
or pedals missing ... or chainring and crank missing ... or wheels missing ...
or tires missing ....... ??

And what about the fenders ? Did it ever have a tank or a chainguard ?


Must be those saddle collectors ... handlebar collectors ... grip collectors ...
pedal collectors ... chainring and crank collectors ... wheel collectors and
tire collectors ........
