General discussions on Wheelmen topics. / early hingehead safety
« Last post by NVHIWHEEL on August 20, 2019, 03:45:10 PM »
Still trying to identify my hingehead cushion tire safety. Research revealed a Union that is very similar? Can anyone add more info?

Also have a mint Rutgers headbadge, but haven't found any info about Rutgers bicycles. Again, any info is appreciated.

Effective Immediately... Naag Tag, Inc is our new supplier.

Many thanks go out to Barak Griffin and family from Danville and Victor and Laura Miller from Louisville Kentucky who attended the "Bluegrass in the Park" for the very first time, as well as Bill Smith and Cathy Smith from Michigan.  All were treated to what makes Kentucky so special.....friendly people, great food, incredible music and an all around "Good time!"

We invite all to attend events sponsored by the Kentucky Wheelmen!  Early June join us at the Great American Brass Band Festival in Danville, Kentucky!  And early August, the "Bluegrass in the Park" festival can't be beat!

Well, I have one.

Hey there Mike, Glenn, David and all.....

 Here are more shots of the High Wheel I'm asking about... 
Has two screw holes on backbone for a ID plate like 1880 or so Pope Columbia Standards as well as screw on step with round pad.. These shots you can see the hub, cranks etc better...
Do you have any photos etc of a Columbia Special like you mention Glenn...
I have not been on any of the bike collector sites in many years. As we all know life sometimes puts us on hold.....
By the way Glenn I still have a 1894 Columbia Model 36 you sold me like a hundred years ago lol...
As always any help is much appreciated !!

Mike,

This is possibly the remains of a "Special" Columbia circa 1882/83.
This predates the Expert.
