Trying to figure out the maker. 24" frame. The front wheel/hub is a replacement (steel glue on). The seat is a Persons--may be later than the bike. Mis-matched pedals-one appears to be Torrington Star. Wood handlebars with cork grips. Has a slight bend in down tube otherwise a pretty nice bike. No numbers or markings that I can find. Thanks for any help. V/r Shawn

I don't think Ajax. No head badge holes and mine has little straps screwed on the top of each side of the bottom bracket. I was also hoping the initials (J.K.) on top of the fork crown would help. V/r Shawn

Ok so I looked this bike over closer today and think it may be a little later than I initially suspected. One of the reasons I think this is that the rear hub is an armless coaster! I assumed it was a fixed gear but when I pedaled the bike the wheel free-wheeled and surprisingly when I moved it backwards it stopped. I checked for any markings and see none. It is different than the armless Musselman on my Flying Merkel. So who else made an armless coaster? One pedal appears to marked "Standard" and the other (missing dust cap and bearings) is marked "Record" the toes straps are not marked but are matching. I'm thinking the seat is original to the bike and that the bike is likely 1905-1910 or so. Still no closer to identifying it though. V/r Shawn

Not sure yet on earlier armless, the original musselman goes back 1900 or before era. The frame and crankset and block chain all look pre 1900. Still researching!!

My 2 Cents:
1. I Think, It's Way Earlier Than 1905!!!!
2. Coaster IS a Musselman, But It Does Not Dictate Manuf. Year!!!
"Stearns or Crescent"
