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!
