Very elegant. Are they the same SA brakes on it? If so, they cleaned up nicely.
Using external links means there's less space used up this site, meaning more potential future threads.
Couple of questions;
Are the odd shaped dropouts on the frame made for this type of hub?
Do you know how to date the Elswick Frames?
yep the complete brake assembly is original except pads and cables, even used original lever ferrules
also original are the cranks, BB, shifter. Was a real battle to keep restoration under budget... due to prohibitive cost of chromeplating I used a 'donor bike' for the wheels and handlebars - wider than originals but offer a nicer riding position - bike is to be used! Donor bike also supplied the chainguard (missing from original wreck). Purists can scoff, but to restore 100% of the old bike would have cost twice as much - rest assured all the old parts have been kept.
I can only presume the drop-outs are SA specific, I've seen them on later 3 speed Elswicks. Not 100% sure about dating the frames, I went off date on original rear wheel and some online comparisons.
