I recently bought this bike, and to my surprise, I cannot find other White Sewing Machine Co. bikes on the CABE or after a Google Search. It must be a rare bike. I hope this thread will become be a central place for posting, discussing and viewing anything tied to WSM Co. of Cleveland Ohio (see what I did there - "thread", "tied", "sewing machine" - hee hee!)

Do you have a White? Please post pics.

p.s. I forgot to explain that the bike dates to the 1890s except for the wheelset and fenders. When I first saw this bike posted on the CABE I thought maybe the fenders and wheels were CCM and added in the 1930s, but when I bought it and took delivery I found the rear hub is a CCM brake from the first half of the '20s. This was a fantastic bonus as I had been looking for that exact hub for another project.

I found this set in the V-CC library archive.
You've reproduced one of the images already above, but I thought it would be good to see the whole series.....

Wow! Even better to see an original copy.
What's the name of the artist in the illustrations?
I can't make it out in the images I posted.

Thanks for the very cool posts!

Who likes a good mystery? A piece of paper fell out of the seat tube. G.R. Simmonds (?) is long gone, but where did she/he live? What the heck does it say? 2 Frofk Blvd? Fiofk? Fofk, Fosk, Fiosk?
...Is it Blvd? or Bay? Did the person maybe spell it wrong? I've had no luck playing with Google Maps. It could be a Cdn or U.S. address.

All opinions welcome!

(That's my double screwdriver for scale)

Sorry, the images I have are small files, when you enlarge them it just becomes a blur.
