i do love the big chain rings, i sold this bike 4 or 5 years ago and traded back into it. its got an 80 tooth front and a 20 rear. it has a minor bump in the top tube but i still like it quite a bit. anyone else have some big ring bikes to show

I wish I had taken pics of what I made. It was a 100 tooth chain ring that I put on Stronglight crank arms with a 3 speed rear hub. It was a blast to ride, and the looks I got were priceless. This was back in high school when I could actually turn it over. To see these examples is awesome! And imagining the riders way back then using them.

Correct me if Im wrong here but that 80 tooth 1/2" pitch should be equal to the 40 tooth 1" pitch we see on the Racycle Pacemakers shouldn't it?.... Either way, cool Laclede! Not a common ride at all!!

Almost looks like a third wheel. Getting it back was the right thing to do.

So LaClede was a badge that the Simmons hardware of st.louis used. This is a page from 1918...the ring looks like it could be right....the res is not the best...but... Thanks for sharing. Simmons had a lot of cool bikes.
