“K” = Kramer
“S” = Special
I was aware of the Frank Kramer Special but had never heard of the Professional Kramer Special? I'll have to go back through this thread and see if I can find anything on that.
I guess "P" can also stand for Pierce. I have seen ads for Pierce Kramer Special but it is basically the Professional model.
PKS = Pierce Kramer Special as Far as I Can Read!!!
It May Have Been FKS for the Buffalo Models,,,,Then It Changed????
1899 - Pierce Special Ad
I recently purchased this Pierce locally. Figured I would add it to the serial # list.
Serial # 188250
Adding one I just found to the list.... #500551 ... maybe that first digit is a 6? on top of bottom bracket next to the sprocket. Also A 1650 on the bottom.
Looks like an Angola Pierce Dave. Does it have a badge? V/r Shawn
Yep, Angola era... serial number is latest of any listed here so far. I am betting it's close to 1930. Badge is missing but holes are in the correct spot for a Pierce badge, and of course the signature S brace and sprocket. It's had a hard life, but restorable. I may do this one, not sure yet. Got it from the original owners daughter.
Add mine,Serial number 601004 top of BB Nickle Plate aperture racer frame Angola badge. As a note the head was made flat plate that was formed similar to the late model schwinns. So the tubes were not joined at the head but about an inch back.
Have a pic to post? Would like to see it!
I got the pierce without wheels. found a set of wood racer rims on Ebay (tufo tires) Also I've added a ND two speed conversion Bit of a frankenbike but it must be a late 30s bike.
Mine has a Morrow hub dated 3rd quarter 1934, so assuming my hub is original to it, the bike is likely a '34. Your serial number is higher than mine, so you're probably right, late 30's, or mid.
