I am just now seeing this thread. I am sorry i have been away so long! Thankfully someone has seen to it that my serial number has been cataloged! This is all good stuff. It has been years since ive looked at the bike and honestly had given up on research because no one knew anything about it and nobody had this much input! So happy to see so many of these bikes out there! Thanks!

Regarding the pierce kramer frame, mine has a peculiar rear dropout, and the bb has no dust cover over the bearings, from the 1916 catalog, thus is for easy oiling track side. Does any of the other racers here show these features as well? Dont see these details in a lot of these images.

( Keep in mind some of the dates on these bikes are speculation on the owners part. Part of the reason we are doing the serial number list of these bikes is to help us all find a way to date range our bicycles. This has been indicated where possible - nothing is written in stone )
