E.J. Lobdell was a manufacturer of bicycle components, including saddles and wheels.

I’m not sure why Lobdell wheels in particular were favoured for conversion to roulette wheels, but I’ve come across a few similar ones. They represent an interesting era of American history, when gambling and drinking became illegal, with the ironic result of an incredible boom in both industries.

This fascinating item is a gambling ‘paddle’ made from a wooden bicycle wheel. The wood is sound, but the paint has faded over half of the wheel.
