I'm working on an old motobike--maybe pre-teens.Has the same sprocket as used on Sears Master.When I removed the sprocket and head tube cups both were stamped on the back side with the letter "D".The stamping was like that used to stamp searial numbers on BBs but only the single letter "D".Any ideas on this? Anyone ever seem this before?

WANTED:   Mead Pathfinder info. posted by: Charlie on 2/7/2002 at 4:53:47 AM
Hi - I posted this over in the balloon group, but perhaps someone here might know. I have a late 1920's Mead Pathfinder (motorbike design) that has a tool tank. While I have seen Ranger decals, I have never seen a decal for a Pathfinder. I am wondering what the detailing is supposed to look like on the tank. Thank you.

sounds like a three-wheeler of some sort. Probably 1880's. What size(s) are the tires (height + width)? Hard or air tired? What do the parts look like? Same for Hubs and Seat?

MISC:   Wood Frame Bike pre 1900 posted by: Tom on 2/2/2002 at 12:37:28 AM
I met a guy this week who has a wood frame for a bike. Very ornate lugs made of steel and nickel plated. He asked if I had any info on it. It is just the frame no fork. I did have a headbadge many years ago but it is gone now. It did not have a name but it had a comet going through a circle or into a circle. The comet was going from the top left or right down to the opposite side. Has anyone heard of this bike. I know nothing about it. He would like to get it so he can take pictures of it complete. It won't be ridden. He does not want to do a pro restoration.

Sounds like an old hickory, circa late 1800s. Valuable frame. The book "Collecting and Restoring Antique Bicycles" has a section on wood frame bicycles. You might be able to identify it from the photos. None appear to have head badges though.

Hi I think the bike you have is a comet bike made in Toronto Ontario, Late 1890's. I have some pictures of this bike and I have reproduced some head badge Decals.I have a comet bike with same decal but it is a metal frame. Get back to me if you like. Dave

You might try Hatt's Custom Cycles in San Rafael, CA. The number there is 415-488-1441. Ask for Brett. I don't know if he can help you or not but the shop does specialize in pre 1975 HD motorcycles.
