PATENT LEE A. HAWKINS AND IVILLIAM N. O. GARDNER, OF JEROME,.ARIZONA TERRITORY.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 596,998, dated January 1 1, 1898.
Application filed August 28, 18 96.
To ctZZ whom it may concern.-
Be it known that we, LEE A. HAWKINS and WILLIAM N. O. GARDNER, citizens of the United States, residing at Jerome, in the county of Yavapai and Territory of Arizona, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Bicycle-Canteens; and we do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same.
Our invention relates to bicycle-canteens.
Our object is to provide a simple, cheap, and durable canteen for bicycles, which will be out of the way of the rider and will securely maintain itself in position without necessitatin g the employment of straps, clamps, or fastenings of any kind.
Having these objects in view, the invention consists of a bicycle-canteen of such improved and simplified construction that it fits the frame of the bicycle and needs no clamping devices, being held in position by its own weight.
In the accompanying drawings, Figure 1 is a side elevation showing my improved canteen applied to a safety-bicycle. Fig. 2 is a top detail view, and Fig. 3 an end elevation.
A designates the king-post or seat-posttube of the frameof a safety-bicycle, and B the bottom line-tube of the same, which tubes, as usual, converge and meet at the crankhanger G.
Our improved canteen is designated by the numeral D, said canteen being triangular in shape, its narrow front and rear sides being of the same inclination as the respective Serial No. 604,214. (No model.)
tubes A and B. The canteen is of somewhat greater thickness than the diameter of the tubing,and its front and rear sides are grooved their entire length, as shown at E and F, respectively, so that when the canteen is in position the tubes A and B lie in said grooves and the weight of the canteen and fluid therein serve to hold the same securely in position without the aid of clamps of any kind. Such a construction is very advantageous and desirable, inasmuch as the canteen can be removed and replaced by simply lifting it out of or lowering it into position, while it is so narrow that it can in no manner interfere with the use of the pedals. The flattop of the canteen is provided with a removable screw-cap G to allow of filling or of removal of the contents of the canteen.
Our improved canteen is preferably con- LEE A. HAWKINS. VV'M. N. 0. GARDNER.
