    If you are interested, the Parts Catalog number for Deere bicycles is PC1381, and shows the contemporary high rise, 3 speed, 5 speed and 10 speed bicycles.

    Has anyone found any literature on the earliest Deere bicycles?

    The bikes built in the seventies were:

    20 inch high rise - yellow
    3 speed - green
    5 speed - white
    10 speed - black

    sorry for the typo above -- that should be late 1890 era, with three models introduced in 1894 and two more in 1899...

    For which?
    According to John Brogan, a specialist in John Deere bicycle restoration, and the official history in the post above yours...
    "Three brands were manufactured in Chicago under the Deere name: Deere Leader, Deere Roadster, and the Moline Special. Additional models introduced in 1899 were the Reindeer and Fawn."
