What is the box framed/fork bike above?

Life is like riding a bicycle, to keep your balance you must keep moving.
Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me, I want people to know 'why' I look this way. I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved. Hell, some of the places I’ve been there weren’t even roads!

When I was a kid I remember my mom's CCM having a little strap on the rear hub for that purpose.
Yes to both. Straps were included on many 3 speed hub/coaster brake hubs because of slight oil weeping. To keep the hub clean, the strap was installed at the factory. After the strap wore out/went missing a piece of cotton rope would be tied in there to do the same job. Tried to find some reference to the origins but came up empty handed.

Nice to see the pictures of old bikes in here. I need to get some of my stuff out, take a picture and post it!

I know that area well. Grew up on NJ side in Ewing, so rode same trails, just maybe 8-10 years later
Great place for a kid hopped up on Kool-Aid and Wylers to burn off some sugar

Ewing - my grandparants lived on Ridgewood Ave for 60+ years, before that on Green lane where my dad was a kid. My grandmother's brother was chief of police in Ewing from '66 to '88, you may have had some interaction with that department - I did .

My two late-to-the-game Schwinn mountain bikes. 1985(?) High Sierra and a 1982 Sidewinder. Cough * cough *both for sale *cough*

Some of y'all might even get the reference of my name.

Elgin made a Four Star model from 1931 to 1940 but all the pics I've found have a different chainring than your bike, in fact every Elgin I've found has a different one than you have. The skip tooth chain was used from the early 1900's until about 1950. Hope that helps just as bit.

Picked this up after a random craigslist search. Paid a lot less than I ever would have thought. Rides REALLY nice!


1983 fillet brazed by the man himself.







Funky old specialized bag and a cool stem that looks suspiciously like old school Salsa.

There was a P23 for sale here locally in the R/W/B racing livery. My size and everything.

Too bad I don't have the $ for it!
