You are correct. It is a reproduction made around 25-30 years ago. I found one back then, and still have it.


Wow,  Good eye. I do recall a family growing up. I remember the family well. I knew them as the Chlorine family. There was a set of twin boys, Joey and Johnny Chlorine. Unfortunately the boys were split up at the age of 11. The parents were unable to care for both boys. I believe Johnny was the one sent to an orphanage in Arizona. Unknown what ever happened to the family after Johnny was sent away. I think the family may have moved south towards Florida.

What about the brake arm pivot mounted on the handle bar. OH, I must be mistaken maybe it is a fishing pole holder or an American Flag holder bracket or something else.

So, put on your big boy panties and bring it to Copake swap meet for the real collectors to critique it for you.

Craig,   I agree. Corresponded with Mr. Colby regarding the Star. But he has it all figured out. Please see The Cabe, Comments about this machine.

Be prepared to pay sales tax when a company has a physical location in the state you live in.Not all states may be on board to this yet but it is coming. Many states are going to crack down on the small ebay sellers also. I live in N.J., deal with a company in Maine and have to supply them with a tax exemption form.

    Not really sure, but they may have also produced pool water related goods. Such as snorkels, scuba fins and masks.

Very sad to here. Paul was always a lot of fun and new how to party. He will be joining all the Mr. Chips he has had over the years. Paul is now in Wheelmen Heaven with the rest of deceased Wheelmen. Rest in Peace brother.

    Keep your eye on Copake Auction in April. One may show up in the auction or the swap meet.

Richard,  I would recommend placing a post on The Cabe. It will expand your search. I will keep my eyes open in case I stumble upon one some where. Nice piece to have.

      Ed,  Years ago I had to replace the string on a ladies saftey. Way before computers. I used braided fishing line. It was available in many colors. I found one that was tan with a repeating pattern. It looked good when completed. You can also create your own pattern of lacing if you do not have an original one that you need to copy.

55inchwheel,  You are correct. It scared me when I saw the unknown script. Knowing the Wheelmen site is not secure, it concerned me that a hacker may have infiltrated this site. My concern was for all members to be cautious when the unknown appears. By the way, I did not open that post and will not open any that may be in a different language other than english.
If you have opened it maybe you can share with rest of us.
       And that`s The Rest of The Story,  Good Day

 Administrator,  I realize the Wheelmen website is Not A Secure Site. Please assure me that it is safe to open the post about the black coffee show. As I am not fluent in Ukrain I d`not understand what the topic says.

  Craig,  The Homer bicycle was also produced in Vineland. But I am not sure if they were a manufacturer or if they assembled generic parts and put there own head badge with a homing pigeon as there logo.

Thanks, Wayne

   I am looking for New Jersey manufactured bicycles. Preferably original paint and accessories. Also, South Jersey most preferred, including head badges, literature, adds, and all memorabilia.
