Looking in reference to a Pacemaker Bicycle 1893 that was mentioned in Wheelmens Publication #51
 (note I do not have a full copy yet, have tried to order one, but the process seems a bit slow)

This post has been re-posted due to new information found about this bicycle.  It does not appear at all consistent with my findings of the Pacemaker Bicycle Company or the Kenyon Bicycle Company. 

Does anyone know of this bicycle, or are there any records of the bicycle while David Metz had it?

Who could I contact that may have notes or record of it?   

Thanks, Kurt

I found that the founder Mr. Kenyon, was from Wisconsin and after marrying moved to Des Moines Iowa  & established himself as a bicycle manufacturer.  Of what I understand he was the first bicycle manufacturer in Iowa.
