Riding a '38 Autocycle Deluxe
In response to the cast stem vs. this style cheaper stem.... most of the shelbys postwar being deluxe or not all had this style stem after about 1949/1950. After the war shelby was on the cheap for building bikes. I've got about 50 shelbys in my stable all dating from 1936-1951, mens and womens. Some are matched pairs with matching years and matching paint schemes. This bike was a hell of a deal and I wish I saw it sooner. I would have bought it. I have 2 other Rowletts shelbys in my collection. One is a Fox badge and the other is a Bird badge which I bought from Brian awhile back.
