SCROLL DOWN FOR NBHAA CATALOGUES TOUR (This page is presently under construction)
Welcome to Classic Bicycle Heaven and the web site for serious bicycle historians! This website is dedicated to identification, cataloging and restoration advice on bicycle history, especially Classic American bicycles 1920 thru 1965. We have the world's largest library of original classic bicycle literature- over 60,000 catalogues, photos and books. We also have the world's only classic BICYCLE FILM ARCHIVE (including nearly 300 actual bicycle films- not videos). Be it Schwinn, Shelby, Columbia, Evans, Evinrude, Elgin, J.C. Higgins, Western Flyer, Hawthorne, Hiawatha, Roadmaster, Pierce, Iver Johnson, Indian, Rollfast, Firestone, B.F.Goodrich, Good Year, Bowden, Manton & Smith, Mead, Ranger, Ingo-Bike, Murray, Mercury, Huffman, Huffy, Dayton, Colson, Monark, Silver King, Stelber, Ross, Harley Davidson, Whizzer, Dynacycle, Wasp, Pow-wow, Travis, Marman, Jack & Heintz or what have you, National Bicycle History Archive of America (NBHAA) can identify virtually any American-built bicycle or motorized bicycle from this period.
We can assist private collectors with information and advice on history and restorations, however, we have changed our free information policy, especially since some who have gotten free information not only wanted it free but, incredibly, wanted to make abusive responses and use in profit schemes. PLEASE read NBHAA FAQs section before making requests.
We are available with original bicycle movies, videos, slide shows, speaking engagements, and have access to the curator's collection of over 1,000 bicycles. NBHAA is not affiliated nor connected in any way with a museum. Although we do have specific fees for certain services such as copies, we have never and do not ask for "memberships" of any kind. Furthermore, we are not represented by nor connected with any other persons or organizations. Although we do not sell bicycles or parts, we can assist you in locating those who do.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us directly via E-mail . Remember, ALL identification requests and inquiries MUST be accompanied by a photo (and self-addressed stamped envelope if using snail-mail). And PLEASE read NBHAA FAQs before making requests for information.
We regret that due to the volume of inquiries we receive, we cannot respond to snail mail as rapidly as e-mail (we have a substantial backlog of the latter). All photo submissions become property of NBHAA and we regret we can no longer return photos due to the volume of mail.
Thus, submitted for your approval is this GUIDE TO OUR NBHAA ARCHIVE OF BICYCLE CATALOGUES. This was the first, largest and only collection of its kind, encompassing over 60 thousand bicycle catalogues, books and photos ranging from the 1800s-1919 antique era to the 1920 to 1965 Classic Era... and beyond.
