The Wheelmen page on Facebook overtook this site. Plus it is extremely easy to post pictures.
   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.

Yeah, I think he mentioned those to me.

I believe they were made from the late 1880s to ca 1898.  Hope that helps.  B. T. W. .. I have seen at least 6 different images.  Carl Burgwardt had a group in a Cabinet.  Best to one and all.   Lorne
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.

I haven't had problems posting pics. I do think the club is suffering in some areas of the country. Other areas are thriving, actually growing. IMO it comes down to each state chapter, and how much time and effort you want to put into it. If state captains aren't active, participation and interest drops off. This new site will grow. Give it time. Be positive and participate.
Board for buying and selling Wheelmen goods and services. / Wheelmen jersey wanted

I am looking for a medium or large Wheelmen jersey that was sold by the Wisconsin or Illinois Wheelman about 15 years ago.  They are yellow and purple.  If you have one and are interested in selling it please contact me at 734-625-5210.  I understand that this could be a used item, that is ok.
Sorry to hear this. If Diane Blake is not going to continue the business, who will roll hollow rims in the future? I hope the hollow rim rolling machine Victory acquired from Larry and Jerry Lunz will be put in the hands of someone like Craig Allen, Ed Lee or Greg Barron as they are capable people. Without rims, most bicycles being ridden or those yet to be found, will suffer from the inability to repair or restore them.
Best scenario is that someone will come in to replace Al Sneller to help Dianne or buy their company and continue the business of building the Victory bicycle.
