Is this bicycle too old to be of interest?

Maurice's palmares -

1921 - London-Bath-London in 11hrs 55mins 30secs
1922 - rode 337.5 miles in 24 hrs
1923 - Lands End to London in 17hrs 47 mins
1923 - Paris Roubaix.

A true champion in the pioneer period.

Killed whilst riding to his shop in 1935.

Rk.

Eh? Sounds very interesting to me! Why'd you delete it?

Photograph doesn't really do this rare machine justice.

It should be in a museum.

Thanks for the interest, I've listed another of Maurice's cycling achievements.

Hi, a better photo is what's needed, its always good to see some real historic usable bikes on the forum, the basics haven't changed for over a century, nothing's new. Terry
