That's a great bike Dave! I spoke to Alfred quite a bit about this bike and I'm glad it found a new home. I think I would leave it original for now until you really look it over good and decide on a full restoration. All the information that I have on these Andrae track racers is that they were coming in at 18 - 20lbs compared to what this one was. I was puzzled because all my catalogue info from 1896 - 1900 didn't show the 5 pin ring.
A beautiful piece either way and looks great with the wood setup on it! Nice score!

I'm guessing it's a 97-98......

Here are my Ghisallo 700c carbon fiber/wooden wheels, with New Departure Model A rear and Type M front hubs. They have Philwood 14g double-butted stainless steel spokes, with 1” length nickel-plated brass spoke nipples and round beveled washers.
Leroy of Philwood built the wheels and rebuilt the Model A hub. These are going on the 1902 Pierce Special for riding and saving originals for show. I’m planning to use Specialized FatBoy smooth tread tires.

I just received the Noah Stutzman 30” x 1-1/4” ashwood tubeless tire rims, for my 1896 Crescent No.1 bicycle. I’m going to use a 1900 New Departure Bell Co. 40 spoke coaster brake and TOC 32 spoke front hub. Leroy, from Philwood, will be building the wheels with 14g double-butted stainless steel spokes.
I will be heating and stretching Robert Dean 28” x 1-3/4” white smooth tread tubeless tires onto these rims.
