    Here's my old 1939 Cecil Walker Stayer bike which was the "only Stayer" bike that Walker ever built. His own personal bike that I found out of Australia many yrs ago. He sold it in 1956 to a couple of guys who assembled it and tried to do some high speed laps on the Velodrome there. By the 3rd lap and top speed they had some wheel wobble and abandoned their attempt. The bike sat ever since until it came to my collection. Super RARE!!!
