I don’t know whether I’ve found this in time, as it’s extremely rusty, but “shoppers” are so rare around here that I have to have a try at least. I must also say that viewing the amazing range of shoppers on the “Little Bike Blog” from Melbourne has got me interested in these handy little workers.
A 3-speed bike that was “hand-built” in England and fitted with front and rear racks, the Sturmey Archer hub dates it to around 1984. The graphics have a borderline late 70s look too.
The rust is beginning to go structural in places yet the bike still shows promise and has dismantled quickly and easily for such a rust bucket – and anyway, there is always some sense of achievement in getting a basket case like this going !
Tyres are an unusual 20″ x 1 & 3/8″ ( 37-451) so who knows whether they are still available, let alone in white ?
This may take a while …
