Posted by: Thomas TITLE: AGE / VALUE:   Bluegrass
I have a mens complete bike in VG condition that I picked up a couple of years ago at a thrift shop. It looks old and seems to be virtually all original except for the handle grips and front wheel (which appear to be schwinn). The badge on the front reads Bluegrass Tool Company. I have searched the web for more info but have found nothing...plenty on the tool company but no mention of the bikes. Saw the badge once on E-bay going for twenty bucks but have never seen or heard of a complete bike. When are they from? Thanks.

Thanks for the info. It~s surprising how few of these I see referred to. It~s a good looking, pretty straight ahead english style bike. I like the sort of solid, hardworking blandness of it. Someday I~ll find someone to restore it. In the meantime, now I know a little more about it. Thanks.

Yup, I~ve got their pocketknives... It may be Schwinn built, some retailers put their badge on bikes from more than one builder.

Thanks for the quick response. Any idea about age and/or value?

The Bluegrass bikes I~ve seen have been Murrays.
