1950’s Phillips Tradesman Cycle / Butchers Bike -sold

5 Oct

Description

For sale, a 1950s Philips tradesman’s / Butcher’s bike. One company owner from new. Handmade in England.

This was 1 of 4 bikes owned by B.O.C.M in Selby, this particular one was used for the internal post until the factory closed and was retired from duty by a previous employee who rode it at the factory delivering the mail.

It is totally original except for a new laced up Brooks leather saddle and a new front wheel and tyre. A wicker basket is included for carrying goods up front.

This bike has a single speed gear, so would make a good run about for short journeys or flat terrain. It could also be used for advertising your shop or business by hanging an advertising board from the top tube.

Second hand condition – spots of surface rust here and there. Like most vintage cycles it’s not perfect!

Bianchi Campione Del Mondo 1973~1974 Touring Cycle – SOLD

18 Jul

Description

An exquisite 1973-1974 Bianchi touring cycle sold. Handmade in Italy by the company Edoardo Bianchi founded in 1885 – the oldest bicycle company in the world.

Restored by the Vintage Cycle Company to its former grace for your enjoyment for years to come. Own a piece of cycling history.

This Bianchi is a touring cycle with 26” wheels and 1 3/8” road tyres. Original mud guards are maintained for wet weather cycling – perfect for year round long distance and commuter cycling.

The bike is in its original condition and specification, although the seat and gear and brake cables have been upgraded/modernised and high density foam track grips have been fitted for comfort.

The gear cables are JagWire branded and the brakes have been fitted with SRAM Pitstop specification for safety and reliability. White cables have been selected to compliment the metallic blue frame.

The bike has been serviced to our usual high standard, so the groupset is tight, the wheels are true and strong, the chain is lubricated and the various bearings and hubs have been cleaned and oiled.

The groupset is by Shimano and the brakes are Dia-Compe (drop forged)

An absolute pleasure to ride – incredibly classy and is guaranteed to turn many heads.

Second hand condition – spots of surface rust here and there. Like most vintage cycles it’s not perfect!
