To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that OBADTAH SEELYdeceased late a citizen of the United States residing at Syracuse in the county of Onondaga and State of New York did invent and produce a new and original Design for BicycleStands of which the following is a specification reference being had to the accom pally i ng drawings showing a part thereof.

The essential features of the design are a standard and a slender vertical shaft extending upwardly therefrom supporting two inclined armsboth of which terminate in curved ends or hooks. These arms are arranged in the same plane and extend upwardly one toward one side and one toward the other substantially at right angles to each other.

The invention will be understood by reference to the accompanying drawings in which the same numerals of reference refer to the same parts in all the figures.

Figure I is a front elevation of the design. Fig. II is a side elevation thereof seen from the right. Fig. is a crosssection of the shaft on line of Fig. I.

1 indicates the standard having legs 2 2 2 three in number supporting the elongated vertical shaft 3 finished with ribs 4 4 4 on its edges. These ribs may be formed on both the front and rear faces as indicated in Fig. or on one face only. From the upper end of the shaft extend upwardly and toward the right and left respectively arms 5 and 0 one longer than the other葉he left arm G as here shown. The ends 7 7 of these arms are bent outwardly and downwardly and finished with similar hooks S 8.

The front of the stand as shown in Fig. I may be finished with a bent plate 9 of which the lower portion 10 fits rather closely to the front surface of the shaft and the upper portion 11 is bent outwardly. To this plate 9 is attached a forked arm or extension 12 extending outwardly from the side of the shaft.

The design is simple and peculiar from which it harmonizes with bicycles which sustained on such stands are often displayed in shopwindows and other locations.

Having described the invention what is claimed as new and desired to be secured by Letters Patent is The design for a bicyclestand as herein shown and described.

In witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand in the presence of two attesting witnesses at Syracuse in the county of Onondaga in the State of New York this 12th day of March 1897.

IIORATIO S. SEELY Administrator of the estate of Obadiah Seely.
