The Rococo lugs were first used in 1900, although either they were advertised in 1899 or the 1900 models came out in late 1899. Here's an ad where they were first advertising them.

Does anyone have any knowledge of Rambler paint options for a 1901 Model 41?
I'm hoping to see this machine on Saturday and my friend is keen to paint it soon.
Thanks,
Darren.

Here are some images of my friends Rambler, as seen this morning. It's basically been painted green all over. He's going to get the frame blasted and then re paint, still looking for help re colour schemes.
The hub came with it, can anyone help identify it please.
Thanks,
Darren.

I only have the 1900 catalogue which is the closest to yours. I would think it didn't change but you never know.

Here is what they say:

What is the difference between the 1901 Model 41 and the Model 43?
And we’re there 2 different types of saddle posts offered?
This photo has the saddle chassis clamp built into the post(not my Rambler). My previous photos of mine has a standard post.

The hub looks like an early Pope coaster hub, ca. 1903 or so

@Andrew Gorman, I posted a separate thread re. this mystery hub.
@Barnegatbicycles nailed it, identifying it as a 1903 ABC 2-speed coaster. It's going to require a little work to make it useable.
My friend has built up a nice rideable wheelset, using an early Eadie coaster hub and period English front hub with some very old English Westwood rims in 28" size.
He's had them shot-blasted and repainted black.
Here's the latest photo I have from a week ago.....

I think it's looking pretty good.

Can anyone help re. a suitable chain for this machine, would a roller chain be suitable for a 1901 Rambler?
Anyone got a spare chain for sale? PM me please.

Can't wait to see it rolling.
