I have been bike junkie my whole life. I have a few in my collection. I just bough 2 Tribunes bicycles at garage sale and a few extra parts. One bike had Frame,Forks,Handle bars and crank. Next one has Forks,Crank, Seat post and goose neck. I also purchased 11 rims 9 have skip tooth sprockets. I also got 6-7 sets of different Forks and 4 different handle bars. Couple coffee cans of old peddles. I also got a Emblem frame that’s pretty bad.
I have looked but have not found any prices on these bikes. Does anyone have any idea on $ Value on bikes?
Thank you

Tribune Bicycles were manufactured by The Black Mfg. Company in Erie PA - 1894 through 1902 model years.
The Tribune in second photo above is a 1899 Model 40 which is their less expensive model offered that year. General bicycle values are based on make, model, completeness and condition. More close up photos of this Tribune and your other one would help understand their condition. There will be a serial number on the bottom of the frame under the crank set. I would be interested to know what it is if you can read it. Should be between 35000 and 50000.

1894-1902 Tribune serial numbers are chronological and continue from one year into the next year. I estimate the serial number ranges to be:

1899 serial numbers are between 35000 and 50000
1900 serial numbers are between 50000 and 66000
1901 serial numbers are between 66000 and 80000
1902 serial numbers are between 80000 and 92000 (90202 is the highest 1902 number I have found so far)

I am not sure what happens 1903 and on as production was moved from Erie PA to Westfield Mass. and I have not research that later era of Tribune.

1899 through 1902, the nameplate head badges had a different design each year - 1899 says 1899, 1900 says American Bicycle Company successor to Black Mfg. Co., 1901 says 1901 and the Model No. and 1902 says 1902 and the Model No.

Can you post a photo of the frame and nameplate from the one you took the serial number from?

Thanks for looking for the number - Jeff
