What sort of bell did the Locomobile have?

Post  Stork on Sun 27 May 2018, 9:42 pm

Hey guys, I have seen a few videos where a Locomobile or early Stanley drive by and they ring a bell... does anyone have a picture of what one should look like? Maybe the company that made them... or were they generic 'trolley' type striker bells? Lastly could there be a decent sub to place on our Lykamobiles?

Lyka Bell

Post  Goliewogs on Tue 29 May 2018, 3:18 pm

Hi, I have no idea what the original Lykamobile used for a bell, if it had one or indeed any sort of warning device apart from a Bulb type Horn!! Nowadays, I have seen many pictures of Lyka's fitted with "Bermuda Bells", sometimes called "Step Bells", or "Sutone Bells", or "Ding Dong Bells" or "Tram Bells"! All of which are foot operated and non of which are manufactured these days. However, if you search Ebay you can sometimes find one, but be warned, they usually fetch high prices at auction! I managed to find an unused bell for my Lyka and it cost me nearly 400 Euros!! Regards
Greg
