Very nice looking Iver, the model appears to be a Truss Frame Roadster................looks like an old repaint at some point in time. Yes, serial number would narrow down the year. Pete in Fitchburg

if the OG owner rode it to work (assuming he was around 18 years old when he started to work) and your friend got it from his widow, the lady must be around 120 years old or maybe she married a much older man!!!

A lot of teeth in that large chain ring, lost count in the black; a 30 tooth?
OG must have rode to work down-hill, both ways!

The market for used bikes was pretty strong in the teens/20s. Probably picked it up second-hand.

It's post 1915 for sure given the arch bar joint (The new joint of solid steel referred to in the improvement section below).
I would think 1917 give or take. My 1915 is serial 256466

That was just the story that was passed on to me. That was 10 years ago now. I rebuilt the rear hub and plan to install a headbadge that he bought for the bike. Just need to drill/tap one of the headbadge holes. Cool old bike but it has been re-welded at the seatube/BB junction. I think he was told 1914 but I thought I could narrow it down better with some CABE help.
