Isn’t she lovely?

A local film company brought this beauty in for us to fix up.  We decided to do a little research as there was no doubt in our minds that despite it being in great condition this bike was ‘vrek’ old.

 

 

Turns out it is a Ladies British Loop frame circa. 1900 – 1920 (!) in the exact same frame design as Triumph, Raleigh, Humber, Phillips.

 

 

These are the things that make it unique:

 

Chrome fork detail

 

 

 

 

 

 

Vintage Czechoslovakian ‘Favorit’ coaster back brake

 

 

 

 

 

 

Fully encased chaincase – old Raleigh roadsters had ones with a full plate on the front too which was Raleigh branded with cool artwork

 

 

 

 

 

 

Front tyre brake system – mostly found on Triumphs

 

 

 

 

 

 

Such a priviledge to be visited by this piece of history!

    1. Hi Justin,
      Thank you for your query. You have done some thorough research already! We will reply via email should we have any further info on this for you. As far as I recall I think we might have found the info we did online and possibly also spoke to Ron Thompson, a walking/cycling en-cycle-opedia.
      All the best!
