Cruisin' on my Bluebird
I was recently contacted by private message, by an individual who also made a post on the Cabe about Nyack bicycles. Here are the only photos I have of the bike, it is currently for sale on Ebay , listed as Spaulding Nyack bicycle. The Nyack bicycle company operated from 1897 to 1901 when it was bought out, along with many others, by Colonel Pope, Westfield bicycles. Westfield, I believe, would re-issue certain bikes, later on, either fabricating new head badges w/ the name or re-releaseing some of the original badges that they had obtained. I'm trying to decide if this bicycle is an original Spauding Nyack bicycle. Nyack had been making Spaulding juvenile bicycles. Other than the obvious later made parts on it, metal clads, seat, rear fender, I'm seeing a few red flags & I'm by no means an expert. Headbadge is riveted on either side. The fork crown does look like the one in the catalog & the head badge does have a resemblance to one that had been on Ebay recently, though looks a little rough around the edges. Any input would be greatly appreciated.
