Just bought this (from this forum):
It actually came with a B66S saddle.
It is rideable but could do with a bit of fettling - wheels trueing and so on. I'll do more than that in good time, starting with a repaint.
It's a 1936 model that was overhauled around 1959. I think it was originally an "All Weather" model with black painted rims etc.
I am debating whether to stick with the rod brakes (assuming I can get the rims true enough) or to try to find some old enough hub brakes. I would prefer hub brakes but the front rim has 36 holes and I don't suppose I'll get an old Sturmey drum in 36, so I'll have to find a 32 hole 28x1 1/2 inch rim. Does anyone have a source for such things?
I'll probably fit a 3 speed hub. The bike would have had the option of a type K 3 speed or KB with brake, but I would be happy with an early AW or AB.
Anyway, my family now has 1930's roadsters for mother and daughter
