1936-38 Belknap Deluxe

Chuck Larcom’s Murray built Belknap is this months “Bicycle of the Month”. When Chuck brought this bike to me, it was a very VERY rusty bike! Just on the borderline of not worth saving, but after many hours of hard work the bike is finished. The paint scheme has been accurately duplicated from the original. The darts on the frame are pinned in a thick gold stripe which really sets off the cream and black paint scheme. The two speed also really added to the look of the bike. The seat, which actually does not belong to the bike but was put on just for these photos was restored by Bob Usasi. Overall I was very pleased with how the bike turned out. Chuck is now enjoying the bike as it is on display in his Savannah GA bike shop.
