Nice condition except for dent on top. Screen is nice. Includes bulb mounting bracket as shown. No reed. $150 plus shipping.

Seems like 99.8% of these horns have a dent on the top bend. Gotta be from dropping the hood on it! Nice horn there. Looks like the round '13 bracket.

Can you post a better photo of the tubing bracket? Hard to tell if it is an original! Nice horn though, and I agree with Tim, it's definitely a 1913.

I believe the bracket is original. It's a little bent up.

Be interesting to know how it got so bent up without without it parting company from the rest of the fitting! I bet it is original too.

That bracket is the real thing! Being brass, it will straighten up easily. Everything there is brass. I sure hope the threads aren't messed up.

The bulb bracket is sold pending payment. The horn by itself is now $125 if you're still interested Randy.

I have a 1915 Rubes horn that I bought on the classifieds here a month or so ago. Bought a new bulb, the correct one from Langs, put it all together and am not getting any sound. Anyone got a suggestion or a hint to where to start solving my problem??

What reed are you using?

The repop reeds aren't really made for the T horn setup; more for the "ram's horn" type found on the sides of rickshaws. I am working on making reeds that will work with the T setup, but until then I have found that you have to go through a number of repops before you find one that will sound OK. Usually you get either no sound, like you are experiencing, or you get a squeal rather than a honk.

It has the original, I think, reed in it. I bought a repo reed at the same time I bought the bulb, but it doesnít fit, thread wise. While Iíve got you on the phone, are you still stamping serial numbers on ID plates with the nice stamps. I need one done for my 15.

Usually original reeds can be tweaked to work well, but you have to be ultra careful because if you go a smidgen too far the reed is ruined.

Yes, I can stamp your plate. Send it in with your return address, the number you want stamped, and $15, and I'll get it right back to you.

That bracket is a good item. I believe Randall Anderson is making the correct one, but the repros that have been around for years ARE NOT CORRECT.
