What a good looking bike.

I can't afford and don't need it so just window shopping here but what size is it?

size is 55.5-56 cm centre of chainset to entrance of seat post (approx) measured it whilst it was hung up on the wall with 3 bicycles in the way so might be half a cm out.

Hello Hurin,

That is a very nice bike indeed. I've just got a few questions:
1. Is that the original paint?
2. What brand is the rack.
3. How does the shifting work? Is the shifter somehow indexed to the SA hub?

Cheers,

JB

Paint is original, it has been stored indoors it's whole life. I think the rack is middleburn will confirm tomorrow. Shifting works with 2 speeds on left, 3 speeds on right. You move the shifter to where the gear is and it clicks in much the same as normal sturmey archer and you can do it from a stationery position also.
