    Saved this broken frame I found in a bike shop basement suffering from crack and old age.

    Added the gigantic Brooks Saddle and a Sturmey alloy 3sp skidder and I have a very civilized ride!

    I suspect too much skidding with this frame may be a bad idea...

    Nice ride. I like the Sturmey Archer 3 speed.

    Which year had the windows in the lugs. I was thinking it was 1935?
