    Finally got my hands on the Pope I was told about for a year and a half, thinking 1918, any thoughts?
    I know Ed (Catfish) does, being he's the man!

    Unfortunately came with the wrong forks and front fender, looks like a teens Excelsior forks, but I'm pleased with the original double D five star 30 tooth sprocket.

    I am thinking a little earlier. Those dropouts and chain adjusters are the same as the early Pope/Westfield Hendee Indians....1916ish....could be wrong..could have had the same features in 1918. Very cool score. Thanks for sharing.

    Looks like a cool blue on blue white pins color scheme.

    May look blue in photo but definitely Gray with gold pins, may also have darker color between pins.
