Posted by: Bob TITLE: AGE / VALUE:   Is it collectable
I found a bike that has a Sterling head badge & on seat down tube has Harley Davidson, I was told the year was 1915 - 25. The bike is original paint, needs cleaned & waxed. No horn tank or light. Rims are orig. but painted silver, fenders are great no dings or rust. I can buy this bike, is there any place I might find approx. value. This person also has a matching girls bike in like condition.

Thanks in advance; Bob

I have an 1919 Harley Davidson Bicycle, not in good shape it is missing the front tire. It has Harley Davidson on the chain drive? and by the handle bars. I was wondering what it is worth.

If it said "Indian" I~d give it more credibility.
Indian motorcycles and bicycles were made in Massachusetts where Sterlings (and Columbias and Westfields) were made.

It is possible that the bike was sold by a HD dealer and they put that decal on it. Like Gordon said a genuine Harley Davidson bicycle, 1917-1921, would have a headbadge with Harley Davidson on it. Most HD bicycles had the HD chainrings except for some ladies and childrens models. Only the 1919 HD had a tank, others may have had an after market tank.

Sounds a little fishy to me. The few Harley bikes I~ve seen had a Harley Davidson headbadge and the letters "HD" cut into the chain ring 3 times. The were made by the Davis Sewing Machine Company. Is the lettering on the down tube painted or a decal? It is unlikely that any bike that early would have a decal. (My opinion.)
