Anyone know the model specs for what i have here? I have three separate bows pictured. Will be looking for the missing/matching parts to make a complete set.

Top bow 23-25 touring. Where it attaches to body iron is straight. This is curved on 26=27. Invite comment as I haven't had a 25 in 30years.

Tourings have 4 bows, Runabouts have 3.
Top picture is 1923-25 Runabout. Warren is correct about the curve.

Pictures 2 and 4 appear to be the same socket, left front 1923-27 touring.
Last picture, a more overall view would be helpful.

Layden, are you sure that the first picture is not a touring top missing an iron? The first bow on a roadster is separate from the stack?

Pictures 2/4 obviously the same. I can upload a picture of the bows it came off of if that helps ID it.

Warren,
I plead temporary insanity or elder moment.
Runabout tops do not have expanding metal straps.

From MTFCA forum, first 3 are 1923-25 last is 1926-27:

b

c

d

Here is another view of the one top bow still in question. The above original photo 3 & 5 are of the same bow. Any identification?
