Anyone have a picture of a set of these in use they could add here?










Here's Arts patent info I copied from a previous thread posted by Robert Bergstadt recently.

Here are 2 patents for the tire carrier.
In # 1592575 it would appear that the inventor intended them to be used in sets of three,
judging by the offset positioning and tip of a third clamp (#20) showing in the drawing.
Your clamps use this earlier style of clamp bolt .

The drawing for this patent still shows the offset positioning of the clamps,
but the tip of the third clamp is missing from the drawing. ???
(Note L shaped bolt, no lug on casting)

Those were for big car use, the little Lizzie would be strained in the back side to carry 2 big wheels and balloon tires :-)
