The "Superior" Hiwheel

Our top of the line bike is based on the Gormully and Jeffery American Challenge/Ideal. It incorporates steel castings copied directly from an original G&J we have here at RBR.

Oil lamp is now included.
The head, neck, bar clamps, and spade grips from the original G&J bikes were copied faithfully, and have been used to make a bike very close in appearance to the original. The handlebars can be made with a cowhorn bend, straight or dropped at the ends to the width specified by the rider. Handle grips are rubber, in spade configuration, adjustable to angle and comfortable to hold. The bike comes with a bell, as well as a sprung leather hammock style saddle, adjustable rear step, and pantguard. Pedals are antique style rubber block, and the cranks are our adjustable 3 hole cottered type. Finish is a black powder coating. Red or black wheel rubber optional. Step, bars and clamps, grips and springs, are plated.
