WW2 914st INF Div Bicycle rework? original?


Recommended Posts

WW2 painted bicycle I snapped a shot of, same Medford, OR antique mall I've posted other listings from.

 

Don't know if it's original or not, but THEY did a great job. Stencil says 91st INF DIV. Front badge says; Wards - Hawthorn.

This is a typical example of a period bicycle painted OD for re-enactment or display purposes...

 

The only US Army contract bicycles druring WW2 were made by Huffman and Westfield Columbia, and yes, some other makes may well have been used on base after being purchased locally, but they wouldn't have been OD from the factory..

And it must be pointed out the the WWI Infantry Divisions were not title "Infantry Divisions" simply Divisions. it was a at various dates in 1942 the the Divisions, were retitled Infantry Divisions, a few of the Reserve Divisions where reactivated as Infantry Division in their title, the 91st Division was one of them, reactvated 15 August 1942 as the 91st Infantry Division.

Well the marking there on the meat can pouch is for a 91st Division unit, the 347th Field Artillery Regiment.

Another thing we noticed, that Meat Can Pouch, it's a WWII one, WWI one's had buttons.

The guy did a good job on it...It looks like he used a period correct frame...most of the time, seen at shows are post war era frames.......the G519 bicycle is very hard to come across...and early bikes were civilian production line IIRC the story, and painted OD.....the way to tell is the SN under the sprocket carrier
