So my phone rings today and a buddy says I got something for you. He picked up an Iver Johnson bicycle for me. The wheel sets are shot and it's a tad rusty. Don't know the serial number.

I've always wanted an Iver.

Any idea of its year? And good Iver reference materials out there? Hoping to get some better pics later today.

It’s was made after 1921, according to the pat. Script on the bottom of the badge.
You may want to was it with oxalic acid.
If it has good decals, you may want to dip a cloth in an oxalic acid-water dip and just lay over the rusty spots and rub the rest....

Rear wheel is not a 28 inch rim and the front rim is just there. The saddle is in good enough shape so I can pattern it and recreate that cool Persons stamp.

I just picked up the Iver Johnson. Wheels appear to be 24 inch rims! It's got a lot of rust on it so it's going to be a long restoration. But the 24 inch rims will be easy to find and less costly than the Velocity Blunt 35s I use on other pre 33 bikes.
