Wore out three sets of tires already!
The thought keeps crossing my mind of swapping in the bars and chainring from my ladies wartime bike. Easy enough to do or undo as I decide. Any thoughts appreciated.

I wouldn't. But that's just me. I mean, they're all original blackout parts. Maybe I just like the name, "blackout".
It sounds cool. She just needs a seat and a little love. Any idea on what kind of grips those are?

Hi @3-speeder

Sorry for the late reply, I was travelling yesterday.

Thanks again Adrian. Do you have a spreadsheet posted that includes these lightweight wartime bikes?


I put this one up on the site about 5 years ago, so, whilst the information is accurate, I have a lot more now. I need to sit down and produce an up to date list for publication here in recognition of the help I get from the site compiling it.

You'll see the list doesn't even include your ladies bike G53878, which is a really early blackout bicycle. We never worked out the significance of the second number, and I've not seen another, so I would hesitate to strip it. Blackout chainrings and bars are not too difficult to get. Try @Krakatoa in the first instance.

Best Regards,

Adrian

The ladies model wears Hunt Wilde grips. You can make them out pretty good in the linked thread.

What type of saddle was on this bike? Does the one from the earlier photos look correct?
