The Trophy bicycle company?

I had to go to my mother’s house this afternoon to do some maintenance on her furnace. I had forgotten that there were some old bicycles in her basement. There were three frames: one I recognized as my old Huffy 20” wheeled stingray style bike.

But, the two others I don’t really remember as a kid. Both are woman’s/ step through frames. The blue and white one has no name plate, but must be old, because the sprocket and chain are 1” pitch.

But, the green bike has a name plate that was quite ornate, and says Trophy… I did a google search, and the only Trophy bike I could come up with, is a bicycle shop in Philadelphia PA. This bike looks like it is from the fifties, or earlier.

Has anyone heard of a Trophy brand bike, or know any of the companies history?

Myself… I had never heard of them. Maybe next week I can drag the frame out and take a picture of it.

you'll need pics. They sound like they are out of my range of experience, but 1 inch pitch is always pretty cool. let's see 'em.

Same Question

Hey, my mom just picked up an old Trophy Bike too. I didn't see it yet but I can't find any information about the company either. Did you have any luck with that? I'd be happy to hear what you know about it. Thanks.
