Bracket for Basket

Postby Tcc » 15 Sep 2020, 11:00am

Would anyone be interested in this bracket which was attached to a 70s bike I bought a while ago.
I think it’s for a wicker basket and allows the basket to be removed from the bike easily. The basket would strap onto the bracket which then just hangs on the bars.
Plastic is peeling off - probably needs completely removing and a respray.
Not seen anything like this before.
Happy with £5 plus £2.90 postage.
Thanks

that support is made to accept a wire basket which has two prongs on the back, which engage with the 'eyes'. IIRC you can still buy something similar today.

Years ago the wire baskets were sold under the Spencer brand name, nowadays they are under the wing of Weldtite Brand and sold as Adie wire basket. IIRC there were 2 size white and black baskets and possibly an MTB version in black which had a bracket which held the basket further away from the headtube.
