Posted by: Nelson TITLE: AGE / VALUE: EMBLEM MFG. CO. ANGOLA NY
Why can´t I find information about the Emblem bicycle build by the company with the same name?? for years I´ve been checking this site, ebay and other bicycle related sites looking for information or pictures about this bikes. I have one and I just can´t restore it because I don´t know how they look alike.
Do they have an scarce over price?? or worth nothing? should I spend my money and time restoring it? or should I look for a more valued project? who knows, and I´not telling it but asking it. WHO KNOWS IT?????????

Guys, thanks for your unvaluable info. I posted one pic of my bike in this site a few years ago, next to the two posted by Brian. The bike is very very much alike to the Columbia Built - Sterling depicted here as a restoration project. I have also thought that this emblem was build by Columbia later on, but I donīt know.
The rear carrier looks like the monarkīs and the tank like the columbia. Itīs very confusing to me.

sounds like everyone agrees it isn~t worth bothering with. you should take it to the nearest thrift store and drop it off. you wouldn~t want these guys to have to worry about shipping costs, not to mention storage on such a usless piece. !!!!JUST KIDDING!!!!

Emblem Mfg. Co. Bought the Pierce Cycle Co. in 1918. Previously it was Pierce Arrow Automobile Co. So your Emblem was the same as some bikes with the Pierce label. Emblem prodeced bikes under both names until 1940. Your Emblem would appeal to collectors of both bicycles and motorcycles. Probably worth nothing, send it to me for proper disposal. http://oldbike.homestead.com/
