I am seeking information on this bicycle found in our farm shed. The bike is blue with very thin white stripes. There is a serial number on the top of the bike where the seat attaches. It is 4E8736Side view of bicycle It is located in Canada, possibly Canadian or US made. Any information greatly appreciated, thank you!

  • Can't help much but clean it up and it would make a stunning retro/single speed statement – mattnz Mar 13 '15 at 7:46

    I will try to get clearer photographs. Thanks to all who are doing their best to help. Would like to know make & model, and if it's worth restoring (someone is interested in making it a décor item, painting over it .. and maybe that IS it's value??? ... Thank you! – barnfinds Mar 14 '15 at 18:12

Can't tell a great deal from that picture alone... Can you supply some clearer pictures? in daylight side on view looking at the chainring side would be best.

The tubing looks a bit too angular to be a Western Flyer - but some of those did have dual top tube.

Those slim rear stays look like Raleigh or RMI Roadster. Maybe even a Humber... although, I've not seen one with twin top tube.

What size are the tyres? it doesn't look old enough but if they are 28" there's a possibility it could an old Elgin.

If you can provide more information I can try to provide a better identification.

Thanks

  • Personally I think it would be a shame to use this bike for decoration only. If it were me I'd like to restore this beauty to her former glory - have a look at this... a Vintage Harley Davidson bicycle, it could turn out to be one of those if your lucky... nostalgic.net/… – Hitchmo Mar 16 '15 at 15:27
