I picked up this little curiosity from its original owner. It's a Georgena Terry Despatch petite womans road bike. These were made in Japan between 1986 and '89 for the American market. I don't think many made it to Europe.
This one came to Scotland from the US via Ireland with the original owner.
It has 700c rear wheel and 24" front which enables the top tube to be short.
The frame is Tange #1 and the groupset is Suntour Cyclone 7000. It has a nice fluted seatpost and Sakae GT bars with Dia Compe aero levers.
Condition is good with some rust caused by it lying outside this past winter when the owners shed blew down.
Looks like I'll be hanging onto it cause my 11 year old daughter has fallen in love with it and wants to come out on the road with me !
