Look at this interesting solution for the head tube on a small framed bike

Very interesting..
Serotta is well represented, sad to hear theyre now going through a closing down phase

The bickerton folder - the brompton of its day. Nearly bought one at a bike jumble last year.

The un-named mavic SCC rear mech - ahead of its time

lots of panto artistry on frames and components

What is the fan arrangement on the blue bike around the rear wheel/seat cluster?

Here a few photos from the 1978 NY show when I was first assembling our show stand, then manning it. The New York show, along with the alternating shows in Cologne and Milan were indeed the places to be back then.

I am on the right in the two top photos and am the one building up the stand in the bottom photo

Are you in the photo or taking it? anyway nice addition...



As far as the fan thingy goes I think it was intended to add some resistance while on a trainer or rollers....but that is just a guess.
