Napolean Bicycle Sears-Roebuck



Hi,

Found this old bike in my dad's storage room. Looks like (thanks Internet) a Napolean bicycle that they used to sell at Sears-Roebuck back in the day. Any idea of how to ID the year on this bike and/or a range I could sell it for in San Diego?

Skiptooth chain puts it 1950s or before I think. Can't help much with value, sorry.

Here's two links to similar bicycles. The 1910 sears catalog shows a bike like your except it has a different front sprocket. The other one has a different fork. No idea what it's worth. I could only guess that the value of a hundred plus year old bicycle in that condition would be significant.

Are those wood rims ?? The link provided above , https://www.bargainjohn.com/w076bBike.htm , looks to have the same bike. I am thinking it dates 1905-1915 LOVE IT !! VALUE === with something like that, I always say " what a buyer is willing to pay ."

Thank you for the help, they are indeed wood rims. Taking it this weekend to a guy my friend knows that runs a shop and is familiar with this sort of thing for his thoughts/advice.

"The bike was built for the old 28" single-tube tires and wood rims, which were popular in the 'teens and twenties"
