I'll keep this short and sweet...can you tell me what kind of bike my mother was riding in these photos. I know she won't part with it and I have never ventured into the garage behind my grandparents/uncle's home to see it but I know it's there. Since finding these photos this past weekend, I'd appreciate any information you can give me...if you're ever in the Mercer-Monmouth-Ocean County area in NJ, please let me know - I might let you see it!

    Thank you. I love the photos too. Since the photos were black and white, any idea what the bike colors were?

    OK, I was wrong. It's an Elgin... http://oldroads.com/oldroads_files/337_21.jpg

    Thank you so much (even if I was hoping the bike was originally red)! :)

    The bicycle in the photo is DEFINITELY an Elgin. NBHAA.com has all info on these.
