From the great god Freecycle. Looks to be all original, but have no idea of the model at present. Edit:- now believe this to be a "Ten". Needs a lot of love, though it does all work. I have just covered everything in WD40 to protect things for the short term.







Have donated the saddle, pedals, and levers to my Claud Butler project. Have better levers to replace the OE ones, and will get some quill pedals, but will need another Brooks saddle in due course.
