| Hello, It looks like this might be the web site to ask about the old stuff. I recently bought this old friction drive headlight. Its marked Cyclelite manufactured by Splitdorf Electrical. It looks like it was a bicycle accessory. Any idea for sure if this came on bicycles? It sure looks like it did. Any particular brand? Any information at all would be of interest. If all anyone could give me would be directions to someone else who might know about this, I would appraciate that. See the pictures below. |
The generator case is marked Cyclelite and the arm or bracket is marked Splitdorf Electrical Newark NJ and patent dated 5-23-16 I know who splitdorf is since I collect old gas engines. Splitdorf generators, magnetos and sparkplugs are frequently found in this hobby. I have seached the internet high and low and have found nothing like this.
This is the neatest light. The light bulb is mounted on the end of the armature shaft and so it turns with the armature. Does not seem like the filiment would survive very well.
Thank you for taking the time to read this, Mark
PS: there are two more pics change the 1 in scl1 to 2 and 3 to see the others.
|I found this bike in a dry basement. It is complete except for the seat. I'll throw in a flowered banana seat. The Kelly Springfield Whitwall tires still hold air. The rear fender is undamaged. I think the paint and chrome will clean up nicely. $200 plus shipping from NH (03033). Actual photos available upon request. The URL below is the same color as the bike I have|
| Looking for the round, tin cover piece which is part of the enclosed Raleigh chainguard which covers the actual chainring (also would like the sliding tab which fits near the crank). Many thanks!|
