I wonder if the name Barnes is some how relates to Barnes Aviation Field (BAF) in Westfield Mass., where, (besides Hartford, Conn.), Pope and Westfield were once based.
The 1920 black bicycle pictured does not reflect the ToC yellow fellow or white flyer in the online article about Syracuse, NY (state):
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_cycling_in_Syracuse,_New_York#Barnes_Cycle_Company

"In 1936, Mrs. Vincent E. Barnes and her daughter Saddie Knox donated an additional 297 acres (1.2 km²) to the city of Westfield.
"Shortly thereafter, the Westfield City Council voted to name the 'airport' after the family who made it possible, Barnes
".

Strange... your quote of my post is not actually what I posted... and your link that takes me back to one of my old post asking the same question also has stuff written in it that I didn't post... weird, maybe I have been hacked.

Oh well, question still stands, is the bike related to the airport?

I took the time to work on two Western flyers that I'm planning to take to copake. Now I have the time to work on the Westfield. Let's see what I can find tomorrow at the swap meet.. I send you pics of my project soon. Are you plan to go to Copake?

I bought a set of wood rims with a model A ND hub I have to do a serious clean on them. About the bike. I sprayed a little of WD40 . Still to scrub a little more. Good weather is around the corner and I will spend more time. I'm thinking to build another rear wheel with a corbin model 10. That's the one that came on the bike. It's been difficult to find, I will send you a couple of pics. When I get a chance.
