Went into the junk pile and started looking for some parts.
I also enlarged a poster size to match the frame size.
Tacked the a4 pages to old sheet of ply wood.
This shot is with 24" rim wrapped with 3" tire.

These are 26" rims,fine and simple.

I have 2 of these rare early something rims,but they were from off a trailer of some sort. I dont want to change the hubs as they are collectors. They are from the war.

On the back is a 28" and on the front a weird size, like 27". Would have to order tires for the 27",but I do have a set in coaster brake.

Saddle from this era needs new leather ,some plumbing pipes and a old style bottom bracket and frame,at the moment I just want the pipes for the downtube. Need to dig out some old forks and 3 bit crank.

Either this bike had no brakes or has a coaster on the back?
 
I’ve been reading this book since Christmas: (highly reccomended, btw)

and haven’t seen that particular design either. Flipped through just to try and find it. Educated-guessing it came during the transistion from high-wheelers to safety bikes, when there was a resurgence in new designs. The cross-frame bikes (some using similar cables, as previously mentioned) were developing alongside and being a serious contender against the diamond frames to become the new “standard.”

Neat project!
