    I have had this one for years and only am getting to it now. There is no head badge, the head tube was cracked ( I replaced it); it has ND Model A hub; wood handlebar; CCM Hercules saddle; the fenders have a recess into which a mounting clip can be placed; Columbia pedals and unusual crank set. Any assistance appreciated. Cheers

    Is there something welded on to the sprocket with a hole in it to hold a crankarm pin maybe?

    Hi Wayne. To me, the frame, crank, headset, and wood bars look 1890s. The frame has that '90s awkward geometry. The fenders, ND hub, and possibly the saddle, look to be from the early teens. Did the old head tube have badge holes? Can we see a close-up photo of the fork crown, and a better one of the crank (more in focus) please?

    p.s. What kind of front hub does it have? Any text stamped on it?
