This seller claims the Iver Johnson he's selling is early 20th century:

Not sure what this is, and it may not be the oldest. I searched for "vintage".

Probably this Hawethorne, which has been on our Craigslist almost since it was new (yeah, that long). New carbon fork and this baby is good to go!

Another 1930s Elgin, appears in worse shape than the ones above, asking twice as much.

It seems like I'm bottoming out in the Thirties.

One of these bikes is claimed 1930's but I don't know enough about them to figure out which

I saw a 1950s Dunelt roadbike somewhere that I thought was nice, this one looks even much older:
Excelsior antique bicycle
selling this project that I won't get to.

It's a Teens or 20's Excelsior Cycle Supply

Very original with remnants of its red/burgundy paint and years of great patina.


Please see listing for more pictures.

Also, check out some of the vintage bikes at the museum here, they have a lot:
The Bicycle Museum | Old Spokes Home

Chainless!!! (Someone else clued me into this specific bicycle so kudos to them)


Model M. Chainless E.C. Stearns Syracuse, New York 1899 | Old Spokes Home

UK- Gumtree and they get some really old ones over there, I once read ebay UK and they had a lot of very ancient and weathered bikes but one had to pick them up in Liverpool; I could hardly believe my eyes.

https://www.gumtree.com/p/antiques/o...ike/1148115975

I'm sure ebay UK would have plenty.
