I remember mine flying off down the road from riding too fast.
Never found it.
1967 or so.
Anyone found it yet?

Unless you had a dedicated braze-on for it, it simply wouldn't be safe - too much risk of it swivelling into the front wheel.

I didn't have a speedometer but I was definitely over 19mph! Mine was this Lucas one - no speed limit with that one! I fitted it in 1980 so maybe the quality had gone down. It mus have cost more than 3/6, too LOL!
