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.
