This Vintage 1912 Wonder was the in house bike brand offered from the Shapleigh Hardware Store. Augustus F. Shapleigh had a history in the hardware industry and in the mid 1800s moved to St. Louis Missouri Considered The Gateway to the West. In St. Louis A. F. Shapleigh developed a highly successful nationwide hardware chain called A. F. Shapleigh Hardware. A. F. Shapleigh hardware stores had a long run out lasting many competitors, staying in business up until 1960s. It is known that Shapleigh had some of there bikes made by Pope / Columbia and this one is Pope manufactured. The Wonder Badge says 1912 which leads me to a correct year since the bike has no fender drilling that is a trait that comes on bikes after 1914. This Shapleigh Wonder was restored as found and is a nice example of a basic teens bike.

This 1912 Shapleigh Wonder has been Lux Low Patina Restored and Resuscitated. The Bike has original paint and patina is Lux Low deep cleaned and a sealed coat. The Bike is Restored as found: Early Swooping handlebars, Leather wrapped wood grips, Skiptooth Sprocket and Drive, Early Saddle, Model A New Departure Coaster Brake, etc.. The Wood Wheels are Nice and have Great Patina with Whitewall Tubular Tires, The Wheels Look Great But I Don’t consider them Road worthy. This Wonder Bicycle is a Nice Looking old Plain Jane Bike from 1912.
