    Wheeled Relics, ok after looking at your photo more, yes yours are the early style as shown in my attachment, so I think you are ok..that is a bolt we are looking at or part "B" in that exploded diagram of the early Kelly's, so nothing wrong with your bars there. On the the slightly later Kellys with the forward reach there is a nut that has the Kelly name and pat'd information. But on yours, which I have the same set on one of my pre-1900 bikes, the Kelly name and Pat'd info is directly on the vertical part of the bar-stem or part "A" in the photos. That diagram above should give you an idea of all the parts needed for your bars. In these early production years they made a Ladies 18" wide bend, a 18" wide mens Regular, a 20" wide Special, and a 20" wide Racer. A few years later I believed they expanded to a few other models.

    No I do not - though it would appear so from the picture.... I'll dig a bit further on this one to see.

    That was the only marking I could find. The bars don't belong to me but I sure would like a pair.
