| I have an old boy's bicycle with a front plate that may be brass and reads:|
(Next there is what appears to be an engraving of a bicycle wheel)
Joe's (in script)
(Next there is an engraving of a streamlined train)
(The next engraving shows a six-gun, Cowboy's head, & another six-gun)
(Then in smaller letters it has:)
3851 OGDEN AVE.
The bike has wood rims. Can someone tell me how old this bike is and the value.
| Reed, please explain why your post looks exactly like this oldroads archive:|
Imagine my surprise when I googled 'Joe's Auto Cycle Supply Chicago Bicycle' and this archive was the top hit. If it's not some obscure scam, what?
As far as the bike goes, The wheelmen
show a Chicago Flyer made by Winnie Machine Works
which (the machine works) could have been 50 years old around 1923.
| Ken: Seen a query in a "old" listing from several years ago and copied and added ( please note: my remark about the wooden rims ). I have the bicycle in hand. Thanks, Reed|
| Reed, thanks for your reply. Sorry I was over-suspicious.|
It sounds like an interesting machine and I hope you will have photos to share. I also hope the group here can help with your search. Have you contacted the Wheelmen?
I was impressed that the antique machine guys listed the machine company as the bike's manufacturer. Did you get anything from that link?
| No problem Ken, yes have reviewed Wheelmen site with no success.I have several pics to share, but whom do I sent to?|
via e-mail. Reed
