Need top dome for a Corbin bell
« on: March 02, 2019, 09:03:53 PM »
There is a bell on the 1895 Lenox I am cleaning up, but the bell is missing the upper dome.
The body is 2" wide and has a screw fitting to hold it on.
Does anyone have an appropriate dome for such a bell?
Or a suggestion as to where I might find one?

Like most of the rest of the bicycle, the mechanism is really free of heavy rust and operates well.

If an exact Corbin matching bell dome is not located, a bell dome may be found from an antique telephone collector. The bell domes mounted on antique wall mounted phones or remote yard bells have a central rivet or screw hole like bicycle bell domes. They possibly may be the correct diameter to match your base. Just a thought.

Copake auction has some nice domes as individual lots if you can wait.  Not sure if they are Corbin ... but are cast and of the era. Good luck!   Lorne
