Thanks Randy that would be awesome.  I am downsizing so borrowing it  and returning it is even better.

Title says it all.  Would like to read James Oglands book.

Thanks you

 I have some stutzman wood rims I want to build up.  Does anyone have a source for extra long nipples approximately 20mm in length for the build up?  Thank you in advance.

Was the Kirkpatrick saddle used on the Columbia and the Victor? 

Thanks Dave.  So am still curious.  As I understand it the Victory is a faithful reproduction of the Victor.  Did the Victor ever use that style of seat?

Thank you so much Jeff.  That is exactly what I was looking for.   You have no idea how much appreciate your help.

Thanks Mike.  I keep Leeming and appreciate your help.

Would like to purchase a reprint of the 1892 Victor catalog that Greg Barron was selling. 

Thank you for your help.

As I understand it the Victory was based on the Victor.  While comparing the Victor to the Victory I noticed the saddles were quite different.  The original Victor had horizontal single  coil springs  similar to a Columbia where as the Victory has vertical springs similar to the European design.  I have been told that the Victory seat is actually more comfortable than the Victor design.  I am curious though if it is possible to retrofit a Victor style seat on a Victory.  And if so has anyone reproduced the parts like they have for the Columbia’s.
Thank you in advance.

Found what I was looking for.  Thank you all my Wheelmen friends!

Title says it all. I would like to buy a 50” Victory, a Columbia or a Victor.  I am looking for a ridable  machine, not a project.   Thanks for looking.

Are any Wheelmen attending or participating in the Baraboo Circus parade on the July 20th?  I seem to recall some folks talking about it.

I will certainly post pictures when it is completed.  Thanks for the additional information.  Craig is multi-talented.
