Blimey, my half built project bike has more bits than that :lol:

Beautifully simple. It'd be absolutely hopeless where I live, but love the look of it.

Lush. A delight for the Vitage afficionado, but will make any hipster yealous too.

That is very nice. It is very similar to mine -

Do you have any detailed info on it?

I'm wondering if they could be the Flyer Madison model which appeared in the early 70's?

See here -

It's definitely a 70's model with the 'fatter' rear ends.
