Beautiful Early Ladies Reliance Model D Bicycle built by the Gendron Wheel Company of Toledo, Ohio in 1898. The Gendron Wheel Company’s main production was wheels, producing wheels for bicycles, tricycles, invalid chairs, baby carriages, doll carriage, wagons, wheelbarrows, and toys. Gendron produced bicycles during the 1890s bicycle boom, then later on concentrated on rolling hospital equipment, and the name still exists in the market today. This Wonderfully Preserved Gem has wood wheels, single tube tires, fixed gear hub, Ornate Wood Chainguard, and Wooden rear Fender with Skirt Guards and Can be ridden Gingerly in all it’s Beauty.
