thanks ken.
I just found this picture over there today:

so I~d agree with the 1936. I~ve got a bit of work to do...

IMO, 1936 2.
I looked at some pics on nostalgic.net... seems like that~s about as late as they used that chainwheel. Take a look:

There~s a few in their list with the balloon tires and recurved fenders from that era. But some of them are only dated as "1930s" so that~s a start.
