Really interesting machine, well done in acquiring it in such good condition. The gears are really interesting. They don't even appear on the Disraeli Gears website ( http://www.disraeligears.co.uk/Site/Brands.html ) so must be obscure! How well do they work?

That is quite stunning, I really like it. It's unusual, but in a really good way.

Just found out that the gears are on Disraeli Gears site but under another name -

http://www.disraeligears.co.uk/Site/Suw ... lleur.html

Not a lot of info about them though.

Thank you for sharing the result of your search: before posting it here I didn't know anything about this kind of gear...
(and didn't even know too much about the bike itself) :roll:

That's OK. Being a bit old and obscure myself means that I have an affinity for things like this. :wink:
