I am looking for two crank bearing cups for a G&J Rambler bicycle circa 1897. I expect a few years prior/post will likely use the same cups.

Strangely enough as far as I can tell both cups are right hand threaded which doesn't make sense to me because it seems like one should be left hand thread but maybe Rambler did not start using left hand threads on crank bearing cups in 1897.

The crank bearing cups measure 1.4218 (1-27/64") on outside of the threaded area.
Threads per-inch aligns perfectly with 26TPI on a thread gauge.

I found this information on the internet:
Raleigh: 1 3/8" x 26 TPI and other brands like Rudge.
Chater Lea: 1.45" x 26 TPI another old British spec.

Both Raleigh and Chater Lea use the same 26TPI but neither seem to be correct for diameter.

If anyone else has dealt with this problem of replacing crank bearing cups on a Rambler bicycle, what did you use for replacements? Did you find a modern equivalent that worked if you could not find original cups?

If anyone has the proper cups or possibly a parts Rambler to sell please let me know.

I am looking for a turn of the century woman's bicycle with a short frame preferably 15"-17" inches from center of crank to top of frame seatpost tube. I might even consider an 18" frame but no larger than that.

I would prefer a bicycle in good complete condition but will consider most anything that meets the frame measurement requirement.

I do plan to attend Copake NY and Memory Lane OH, and AnnArbor/Saline MI swap meets in April this year so if you have something that meets my requirements please let me know.

I spotted one of Greg Barron's Rideable Replica bicycles in Stargate Atlantis - Season 3 Episode 15 - The Game.

Actor’s dialog though is funny because the historic timeline is so far off, A highwheel bicycle in the Renaissance Era? I think not.
