This has been a recent refurbishment and rebuild and is still ongoing.

This cycle dates from 1958 (E suffix on frame no.).

23" in all chrome frame with Lindrick lugs. 10-speed Cyclo-Benelux gears with rod front changer. GB Sport III brakes, Lycett Swallow saddle.

Im still in the process of bringing the bike up to full working order, but was able to take it out in the local park today for a test and adjustment session. Very much work in progress as the bike still has a few niggles to be sorted.

Took a few shots of the newly applied decals. I apologise in advance for the flash photography.

Also managed to get a nice Bluemels pump which I suspect is a little later than the machine, but looks the part. 19" pumps seem to be a bit thin on the ground.

I like the seat tube decal, I'll have to get one for my track frame!

I also reckon the lugs are the same as my Pennine. Do you know what they are?
