More to come later...

1951 October aw three speed.

Believe from Peter Kohler article this is the one year only gold paint color

Odometer says 907 miles .

Apart from saddle & rack believe everything original? ....except rust...

I think the rear chime may clean up but front looks pretty bad. Anyone have a front ea1 Dunlop wheel they don’t need? I

Tires say made in England ea1

Let me know what you guys think. I’m thinking to tear down & clean up and leave Everything to original spec....

Is that saddle even for a bicycle? Maybe velomoteur?
Yes cyclometer is Lucas and looks in nice shape!
Red leather straps are Lapize; leather not dried out.
No rust at all on spokes; stainless?

Here after a long deserved bath!

thanks very much for the response! ;)

yet no word on identity of inspector

wonder if he may be a veteran of a social event sponsored by Truman Capote

Looks like someone put red reflector tape on that one too. Very nice and should clean up very well.
Thanks, unfortunately they used red acrylic paint to tip fenders and Chainguard. Hoping it’ll come off fairly easy with goof off.

I typically not a fan of 3 speeds but these old Clubman style bikes I dig, congrats on an awesome score.
