Page 212. 1896 Butts & Ordway Standish Bicycle. SOLD

1896 Butts & Ordway Standish Lady’s Bicycle

21″ Frame

Wooden Wheels with  27″ Pneumatic Tyres

Nickel Fork Tops

Fixed Wheel with Plunger Brake

Butts & Ordway was an American hardware business. Like many similar companies, they tried their hand selling bicycles. Normally they would have bought in either complete bicycles from a local manufacturer and added their own badge, or the various components to assemble themselves.

The wheels and mudguard are wooden, and it uses normal pneumatic 27″ tyres.

It’s fixed wheel with a front plunger brake (freewheel hubs did not come on the market until 1898 and coaster hubs soon after).
