Rare Set/pair 26" Lobdell Wooden Rims/antique Bicycle/teens/1920's/nos Silver For Sale
greetings...here is a 100% ORIGINAL SET/PAIR of 26" WOOD RIMS for single-tube tires from the 1900/teens/1920's. NOS!!
This matching set has never been used/laced/had tires mounted. These are 36-hole rims, thus for 36-hole hubs, which were the most common. These 26" rims, (which actually measure 23" diameter) were for 26" X1.5" tires. Most juvenile(boys or girls) bikes had either 24" or 26" wheels(tire diam.)
==CONDISH== I've had these rims for many years and I bought them as you see them. They show scuffs/scratches/marks from storage from the last 90+ years. They have toned overall from the brilliant silver they were originally. Warmer now. The paint is clean on an area seen, as I did wax this several years ago. Much of the cosmetic marks seen will buff out, but not all I'm sure. Quite a few edge marks. Scrutinize photos. These are quite flat and one rim is slightly not a perfect match to the other as far as remaining perfectly round. It's not off by much, gbut noted here. No cracks or any other obvious damage.
==SUMMARY== finding a matching set of NOS rims is a find indeed, especially for that juvenile restoration or superb original example. The right offer gets these...shipping is free. Need 26" tires? Check my other sale for a NOS-set of Gillette tires. NOTE: The Gillette tires will not easily fit on these rims, as they need to be softened/heated to stretch over these.
Might fit a wheelmen era racer/scorcher Columbia, Iver Johnson, Stears, Barnes, National, Schwinn, Reading Standard, Indian, Crown, Harley Davidson, Racycle, Victor, etc, Shelby, Elgin, Hawthorne, Rollfast, Black Beauty, Emblem, Westfield, Mead, etc.
