(Cl. 280—282)
This invention relates to an improvement in a
rear frame member for a velocipede and has for
one of its principal objects the provision of means
for producing a device in a single stamping which
5 is rugged and sturdy.
Another and further important object of the
invention resides in the provision of means of
Formed in the member adjacent each end 16
is an elongated aperture 22 in which a wheel 24
is operably positioned. The wheels 24 are shown
in dotted lines in Figures 3 and 4.
Formed of a portion of the metal removed to
make the apertures 22 are guards 26 which are
turned upwardly to parallel the wheels as is
forming guards between the step plate portions
clearly shown in Figure 3.
When the vehicle is assembled with the present
of the member and the wheels.

Still another and further important object of
the frame member resides in the provision of
means for positioning a wheel in an aperture
adjacent each end of the member.
Another and still further important object of
15 the invention is the provision of. means for sup
porting an axle beneath the frame member.
Additional objects of advantage and im
portance, some of which with the foregoing, are
hereinafter more fully described, will be apparent
20 from the disclosures in the following speci?cation
and the annexed drawing.
The invention in a preferred form is illustrated
in the drawing and hereinafter more fully de
scribed.

In the drawing:
Figure 1 is a front elevation of the rear frame
member of this invention.
Figure 2 is a top plan view thereof.
Figure 3 is a sectional View taken on the line
30 3—3 of Figure 2.
Figure 4 is an elevation of the device taken
from the end.
Figure 5 is a sectional view taken on the line
5-5 of Figure 2.

As shown in the drawing:
The reference numeral 10 indicates in a general
way the body of. the member which in the pre
ferred embodiment is constructed of a single piece
40 of sheet metal.
invention the guards 26 provide a means for pre- 10
venting a youngster’s feet from coming in contact
with the rear wheels of the velocipede. _
Struck from the central portion of each guard
26 and turned downwardly is a. supplemental axle
supporting member 28. Each of the members 28 15'
has an aperture 30 in alignment with the aper
tures IS in the downwardly turned ends.
It will be apparent from the foregoing that
herein is provided a simple and sturdy rear frame
member which may be economically produced.
Moreover, the frame member of this invention
provides a means for rigidly and securely sup
porting a rear axle on each side of both rear
wheels. Furthermore positioning the rear wheels
within the frame produces an article capable of
withstanding hard usage and abuse without in 25
jury thereto.
I am aware that many changes may be made
and numerous details of construction varied
throughout a wide range without departing from
the principles of this invention and I, therefore,
do not purpose limiting the patent granted here
on otherwise than is necessitated by the prior art.
I claim as my invention:
1. A rear frame member for a velocipede com- 35
prising, a stamping having apertures therein, one
of said apertures being adjacent one end of the
stamping and another of said apertures being
adjacent the other end of the stamping, each of
said apertures being capable of receiving a wheel 40
In the preferred embodiment of the invention
the central portion of the body I!) is substantially
therein, and means for securing an axle beneath
?at to provide a surface to which a back bone

may be readily attached and also to permit the
45 portions of themember adjacent the center to
be used as step plates [2.
Both front and rear edges M of the member
are turned downwardly to stiffen the central por
tion thereof and also to add to the general ap
50 pearance of. the part.
Each end l6 of the member is apertured l8
and turned downwardly as is best shown in Fig

apertures being adapted to receive the upper por- 45
tion of a wheel, and means formed of portions
of said stamping for supporting an axle there
below.
3. A rear frame member comprising a stamp
ing having apertures therein, one of said aper- 50
tures being adjacent one end of the stamping and
another of said apertures being adjacent the
other end of the stamping, each of said apertures
being adapted to receive the upper portion of a
wheel, and means beneath the horizontal por- 55

tion of said rear frame member for supporting an
axle.
4. A rear frame member having an opening
near each end thereof, a portion of the inner edge
of each opening being turned upwardly, and
meansfor supporting an axle beneath the body
of said frame member.
5. A rear frame member having downwardly
turned ends, a wheel receiving opening closely
10 adjacent each of said ends, a portion of the metal
from said wheel receiving openings being turned
upwardly to form the inner edges thereof, and
means for supporting an axle beneath the body .
of said frame member.

turned downwardly to form an axle supporting
member, and a portion of each said inner edge
being turned upwardly to form a guard member.
7. A rear frame member for a velocipede com
prising a stamping having apertures therein, one
of said apertures being adjacent one end of the
stamping and another of said apertures being ad
jacent the other end of the stamping, each of
said apertures being capable of receiving a por
