Had to share this Hershey find-
I mounted it to a hub I had just for a better perspective.

NOS in box with instructions that came in handy when trying to assemble properly.

For a 30” wheel as stamped on wheel & box.

Anyone ever seen another?
Or even an advertisement?

pretty goofy way to do it with the odometer on the hub. you have to stop the bike to see how many miles you have been riding.

I believe this was an early effort continuing from the hub mounted cyclometers and lights of the highwheel era.

Here is one that stayed balanced by the counterweight in the back. Butcher brand, very rare highwheel cyclometer.

I also believe these were more for tracking stats and mileage than glancing down and getting a read on current distance but I could be wrong.

Fabulous find!
Interesting, that it was a later development to avoid damage to the unit, rather than a failed early attempt to find a place to mount the unit.
Wonderful condition of all the contents.
@filmonger started a thread on Cyclometers.
This would be a nice addition to that thread.

Just checked it out and posted, it was Veeder specific though so I posted this other thing I found at Hershey...
