    I've been meaning to make a thread dedicated to the many impressive 19th and early 20th century bike stands.

    I have a small collection of them, I'm sure some of you can contribute to the thread so please show off those early stands!

    A couple entries to folllow!

    First up, F.E. Myers & Bros A frame stand. Very sturdy steel* and cast iron construction in fantastic condition.

    One that is far more interesting than the more plain version above, a recent purchase that some of you may have seen come up for sale.

    Advertising piece for Piso's cure, likely in front of some general store or the like.

    A really cool & simple wood stand that I have often considered reproducing

    I haven't actually had the pleasure of first hand inspection, picking it up at Copake but I don't believe it is adjustable I think a 28" wheel is meant to rest in the opening rather snugly.

    The bike is my 1903 Racycle... the stand is roughly the same vintage “Elmira Cycle Stand Co.”

    One of my favorites, highly ornate. I can't help but envision a fancy wheelman club building with this stand on a nice wrap around porch.

    Markedly similar to this Stearns stand as advertised.

    Very similar, I’m pretty sure the paint on mine is original, there are very faint gold pinstripes on it too, Elmira cycle stand is part of the stand (raised letters cast in the iron)... wonder if it was a licensed item as the design is so similar? Hey Jesse, do you know what year that add is from?

    These are being restored now, looking forward to seeing them in their full-on TOC glory.

    Posted this in an earlier thread. A Myers Perfect stand. Gifted this to a friend who plans to make a mate for it.
