Hi, @Rockman9

Thank you for sharing your bike's details., each piece of information helps refine the list.

Elgin Ladies, Serial A249298, BB Code: C11 is, as you say, a frame from Nov 1936. It was probably built in December since it is the latest frame number I have from that year, and the last bike is known to be A266083, and also there is a known C12 frame which has a lower serial number.

This is the closest Ladies bike I have recorded to it, also a C11.


Elgin Bluebird, Serial A216574 BB Code C10 is an Oct 1936 frame. It's a little lonely, since it's the only Bluebird I have recorded from 1936 with a 1936 frame build date. All the other 1936 serial numbered bikes so far have B9 or B10 frame dates, so they built a batch of frames late 1935, and it took some time to use them up. The 1937 serial numbered Blubirds recorded so far have D1 and D2 frame dates.

Westfield Custom DeLuxe Motobike - Model F64TX. Serial F93052, BB Code: H4 is, as you know, an April 1941 frame.

Here's the only two other Progressive Cycle Co. New York Comets I have listed:

1931 - https://thecabe.com/forum/threads/pre-war-comet-motobike.48716/

1938 - https://thecabe.com/forum/threads/n...ecial-275.128603/#lg=attachment781550&slide=0

I hope this is of use.

Thanks again,

Have a Great Day,

Adrian

Here's a neat one to add... Late 1936 early 1937 Elgin Robin C12 over code B39422 serial!

I recently picked up this unfinished project... the frame, fork, crank and wheel set are original and I am thrilled to have it.

Adrian,
Here are a couple of 1936s I own. The one in the background is A180777/C9 and the one in the foreground is A263420/C12. Both have ND rear hubs.

I also have/had two 1937 Elgin Orioles built by Westfield. The one I own now is B53036/D4 and I owned B167519/D9 (Morrow hub G3). Both are the metallic gunmetal gray with aluminum crescent fenders.

Hi @cds2323

Chris, thanks for sharing those details, I appreciate it greatly. It's good to see such a similar pair. I think they have different headbadges, I would be interested to know what they are.?

A263420 is the latest bike I have recorded for 1936. The last bike was A266083, and on average they were making 720 bikes a day, so this should have been made in the last 3-4 days of the year.

Best Regards,

Adrian

Hi @cds2323

Hi Chris,

Thanks for the update with another frame, and the model names. Westfield had a huge variety of these, a lot left over from the ABC days.

Best Regards,

Adrian
