My Mead Made Modern

Well, Chris (bikewhorder) and I think this is a Mead. I bought it without wheels, and put modern 700c wheels on it. And some scout bars. Im bummed it didnt have the truss rods. I dont know much about this bike but it is an awesome Frame/Fork!

Actually looking at those pictures closer, I'm going to say that it is a repaint because the headset cups match the rest of the paint. It looks like a repainted Mead Ranger to me. -Chris

Looks like some decal remnants on the head tube, can we get a better shot of those?
I picked this mead ranger at the iron ranch swap ...i have the orig. rear fender and a huntin' & peckin' for an orig blue front fender...just snagged an orig. aristrocrat saddle also missin' the correct chain adjusters and a end cap to one of the brampton pedals...a very fun bike to ride...it has the early new departure rae hub too....

Here's my Ranger. Someone converted it to Inch Pitch, I'd like to find a Mead Sprocket with the right rear sprocket for a Model A. I think the gooseneck is newer. The handlebars seem narrow for such a tall bike. It needs a head light. I'm going to try to remove the blue paint with paint stripper and see if any of the original paint is hiding.

I picked this one up today. It's a tall 25" frame, ranger I'm guessing. It was built up with 1950's parts which I've already removed. I do have the correct sprocket and stem, but not the crank which was unfortunately swapped with a short one due to the 26" wheels. It's pretty well bent, rusted, busted and was being used as a wall decoration. A wiser mad would have left it.
