1930 Girls Elgin Bicycle

Hi Dave

You mention the other day you like Elgin bicycles and I have the coolest pre war all original Girls Elgin i`ll share . A friend of mine Ricardo who also collects Antique / Vintage bicycles gave me this bike because he`s running out of room to store it.

I haven`t done much research on it yet but theirs something about Elgin bicycles that draws my attention. I normally don`t collect girls bicycles but theirs something about this old bike I like. I believe it`s a 1935 serial # MOS 125344 Skip Tooth.

Below are some photos of my 1930 Girls Elgin bicycle. Take a look

Thanks Much, Dave Brown

A Word About Skip Tooth Chains

Many vintage bicycles collectors are looking for information about "Skip Tooth" Chains? Common questions are if they were any better, or they were just a natural progression of bikes? Why don't they still make them? Are they harder to find parts for? And what are they anyway?

In general, skip tooth chains have a different link/cog spacing. While a normal bike chain has a 1/2 inch pitch, the old skip tooth chain & cog had a 1 inch pitch.

If you want to learn a bit mire about this old technology, you are invited to visit my article about skip tooth.
