1897 Gormully & Jeffery Rambler Light Roadster Bicycle Model 19

By: Rodger Armbrust

This restored, Chicago made bicycle features spear-point reinforcing on the frame and fork, brazed flared tubing, wrap around head badge, reversible seat post, and original cork grips.

Originally, it had a rare foot operated brake mounted on the fork which was removed. The foot operated brake will be put back on at a later date. An Eclipse coaster brake (patent 1908) was installed early in the bicycle’s history (This was a common practice back then).

Gorrmully & Jeffery Mfg. Co. (1878-1900) sold its bicycle business and then evolved making the Rambler automobile and then became American Motors Corporation (AMC).
