very cool track racer.
chater lea headset, Caminade chainring. New Departure rear hub,
Persons saddle, John Bull Toe Clips, and what looks like Torrington pedals.
the very interesting feature is the square tubing for the chainstays.
the crimped seatstays at the dropouts to make it more rigid.
the unique seat cluster, it uses the 2 clamps, one is the traditional seat binder bolt-
the other is the early seatclamp that tightens with a conical sleeve, and a threaded unit and a nut. Tightening the nut compresses the sleeve to then hold the seatpost.
I’m not sure why it used both.
the headlugs look like early BSA lugs, no keyholes.
The bike has been restored, not sure what is original and what has been replaced over the past 100 years, but still a very interesting bike.
This bike was on display at the International Cycling History Conference,\
and was on loan from US cycling Hall of Fame Museum.
