Elephant bike 18” frame

Postby RodT » 21 Jul 2020, 5:48pm

This bike was supplied by the Cycleofgood charity and has been used twice for local shopping. Cycleofgood undertakes to supply an equivalent bike to their charity in a developing country when the original purchase is made. There is plenty of information on the Cycleofgood website, but basically these are ex-postal service bikes, completely renovated. A limited edition of 5,000 was produced.
The bike features a Sturmey-Archer 3-speed hub gear, drum brakes fore and aft, a hefty pannier rack and a front rack and basket (not shown in photos). It’s a comfortable ride with its wide tyres and sprung saddle. It seems indestructible, but is a heavy bike. In fact, too heavy for the present owner.
Collection only; here’s a challenge- come to sunny Cornwall and ride it back home!
