I live for the CABE
I’ve had this bike for about 15 years now with no idea what it is. The seat is incorrect and I added the lamp but that’s it. Searches have produced no results

Wore out three sets of tires already!
Well...the fork is a teens Michigan City (excelsior) fork.....but the frame has some traits that look interesting. Fork is not Davis. Can we get more pictures of the rear fender stays and where the lower(tank bar) enters the seat post? Also if the frame is Davis it will have the unique stamped serial number on the bottom bracket.

The bicycle has Excelsior features and more. The truss fork with the forged crown looks Excelsior.
Never mind — (see the other duplicate thread, with somewhat better pictures, under those poor lighting conditions).

I entered a second thread in error. Any way to delete one of them? I am still trying to figure out what my bike is, and what the head badge means.

Sounds like I have the ultimate Frankie bike! What do you think of the badge?
Not sure what the “P. C. & A. S. Co.” might stand for, but I thought that a CABE member may have recently offered a badge, “Serl” (or Perl?) — so marked on eBay.
Also, there is a badge so marked on a “show us your badges...” thread — 2nd post, “Mohawk” badge.
Probably not associated with that other bicycle manufacturer located in the Mohawk valley and on the Mohawk River, (not by the higher Cohoes Falls, but the smaller falls).
Most people may associate “A.S.” bicycles with the famous Albert Spaulding — but his was more a Chicago concern.

Finally riding a big boys bike
1920-1922 (only years found) newspaper ads for Union Standard Bicycle. Could not find any references for P. C. & A. S. Company.
