Here are the tentative plans for the annual Memorabilia & Swap Meet at the Bicycle Museum of America.

Saturday, March 23, 2019 from 9:00 to 3:00 pm.
We'll be looking for a couple of Wheelmen for informal presentations about pertinent topics. Any ideas?
We'll have the presentations after a break for lunch.
Would you like a table to show your collection of memorabilia or a selection of your collection?
Would you like to sell some of your extra items?

If the weather permits, bring a bicycle for a ride around town afterwards.

Questions?

I have an 1885 Columbia Expert with a 56" front wheel that was re-worked decades ago and made unfit to ride. The rest of the Expert is fine and I've ridden it over 3,500 miles before tire wires started breaking.
Does anyone have a usable 56" Expert front wheel they would be willing to let go? Maybe part of an Expert with a questionable backbone or fork. This wheel could be part of a swap to make a display bicycle from unrideable parts.

An Ohio Wheelmen has acquired a Columbia Expert that is missing pedals.
Does anyone out there have some available pedals that would work?

Saddle and handlebars exist, missing pedals.

Does anyone keep track of Star serial numbers?
As seen in the photo, the latest date is 1885 and the serial number is 3195.

I've had the opportunity to learn to ride this Star and have been requested to ride it in parades and exhibits next year.
After spending a bunch of time this afternoon re-learning mounting and dismounting, I'm ready for a maneuvering session sometime in the next few weeks (before the snow flies).

A New Rapid needs new grips.  We've been helping get a New Rapid back to rideable condition for the son of a late Wheelmen member.

Who makes replacement grips for a New Rapid?

What is a usual current price for a Col. Pope paperweight?
And what is a little history of them? When were they made? By whom?

The purchaser of the Thorsen tandem purchased at the swap meet of the recent Oberlin Annual Meet would like to know who sold it to him. He is a new member and didn't know who it was. He has cleaned the tandem up and wanted to show the seller.
If someone knows the seller's name, you could send me an e-mail and I'll pass it along.

I've been told that the calendar item in the recent Newsletter is off by one year.
The Wheelmen will be in the 2019 Philadelphia Thanksgiving Day parade  - that's NEXT year.

To make it easier for future researchers to know who was at the 51st Annual Meet of The Wheelmen in Oberlin, Ohio, the names of those in the group photo are being collected. If you were there and you're not on the list, please send your name and ID number to me at: ohiowheelmencapt@gmail.com.  Thanks!

It appears that the graphics loaded as part of a post here are only visible to logged-in users.
A GUEST user and a registered but not-logged-in user will see the text in the post, but no images.

This is apparently true on my laptop and my iPhone.

For official Wheelmen events, let's dress the part as well as riding antique bicycles (or accurate repros). 

The Handbook does allow discretion during a century ride for the rider's comfort and safety in terms of outfit. 

But for OHWT / OAST rides, proper attire should be worn.  Members without appropriate attire should ride at the back of the column and not mix up with folks in appropriate attire.

I know that my outfit is not tailored nor perfect but is not a modern jersey or blue jeans. 
For some parades with known hazards or OHWT rides in unknown territory, I've been known to use a modern helmet for my personal safety.
