Got free old frame need help with make/model
Permalink  
 


Hi All, Last week I got this old frame for free and need help finding out what the make and model is before I restore it. My bike mechanic friend believes it is older then 1950 American made frame because of the casting of the fork (Iron I believe he mentioned) and the thin seat post tube (I'm not sure how it locks to frame either).

He also mentioned that the flaring on the back of the frame where the wheel goes would help a lot with finding out the year/make/model. The serial number on the bottom of the peddles says (line not cap i (I think)): | 8258 |x      There is also an 8 on the left side where the rear wheel goes in.

We measured the rear wheel where it goes in is 130mm for the coaster brakes, front was 110mm I think, looks like it used to be red color. It also has some small holes where a badge seems to go in the front, can measure if need be. Everything looks like it is in good shape for the most part, excited to start trying to figure out the year it was made and who made it etc. Any help with the ID would be awesome so I can see what it originally looked like before I start to restore it. Thanks! - Christian
