Cruisin' on my Bluebird
The hub is definitely Swedish and original to the bike and may be a useful dating tool.
There is another page on the site you found @NIC0, 'veterancykel.se' that mentions the hubs, followed by '36 -'39, which suggests a time range to me, but I don't speak any Swedish:


There is another site that may be useful too:


...that also has some information.

Looks like that seatpost and handlebar stem could be dropped by a few inches?
Could make it rideable, the frame doesn't look that tall, even with 28inch wheels, just a suggestion.

Along with everyone else above, I think that this requires no work other than regreasing/oiling where necessary then I would keep hold of it.
Personally I would use it whenever possible, it's a great family heirloom.!

Oh, and welcome to the Cabe!

machine's pump pegs are interesting

this is the first time have seen a machine where both of its pegs are of the spring-loaded variety

the "normal" configuration is to combine one spring-loaded peg with one static one

here they are shown in a Gentil et Cie (Paris) catalogue page of nineteen and thirty-nine:

I couldn't access the 'cykelforum.se' site.
Access was blocked by my internet supplier!

Very nice bike but I dont think it is 100 years old.It is old though.The condition is very nice but the collect ability in the USA is not very high. Welcome to the best old bike site there is,
