About a year ago I completed the restoration of a ladies TOC bicycle on which I installed a set of 28" solid creme colored tube-type tires which I found on the internet and bought them primarily because they did not have the makers logo imprinted on the sidewall or a sidewall stripe in a contrasting color.  I had Noah Stutzman produce a set of Maple rims that accepted the tires beads and was very satisfied with the results as was the bike's new owner.  I'd like to order a few sets of these tires for future restorations where I know the bikes will be ridden regularly.  The problem I've run into is that I lost or misplaced the sellers contact information. Might anyone recognize the manufacturer from the attached pictures that show the tread pattern? Better yet might know where I could purchase duplicates.  My recollection is that the seller was in California.  The tires were not made by Schwalbe but might have been produced in Holland like I understand most Schwalbe tires are. 
We have one of the  Eagles that Gary Woodward built nice bike ,
 Craig Allen restored it with  a new 50 in rim for us .
Just the bicycle.
I remember photos of you riding a tangential spoke pattern Eagle Light Roadster. I thought all 3 Eagles your dad made were radial spoke pattern Eagle Roadsters? Just curious about the tangential spoke pattern Eagle Light Roadster.
Hoping you kept the Victor adult high wheel tricycle in the family. I remember selling the tricycle to your dad and delivering it to Dennis Woodward out here in California and he sent it back to Gary.
Wasn't long after that when it was fully restored and your mom Doris was riding it. Gary was one of the fastest restorers I knew back then!
Gary was one of the icons of the club and an inspiration to those bringing these machines back to life.

Nice LIFE magazine cover for 1895. What brand bicycle do you think this is? I see the foot assisted spoon brake at the right front fork crown. G&J or ?

My 54” x 22” Columbia Expert Rational is serial number 13715.

Noted, thanks Jeff!  I am going to assume you have a 4th pattern Kirkpatrick on that bike
Well I'm now in eighth position after Jeff reported. This is interesting and keep those numbers coming for Dave to transcribe (no matter what model you have) so this stuff doesn't get lost in history!
