Hi Steve, While passing by a cycle shop I noticed this beauty waiting probably to be grabbed by me... This is in India. here in village places we got lot of old bikes still showing up on roads. But truely i was lucky enough to get this marvellous piece of british work.

Hi bill
Not any big story for this lovely bike. I would say I was lucky enough to get it! The man was waiting to abandon her. But now she is in safe hands. i am presently trying to restore this with max.original parts & no painting as decals are not available to me right now. Waiting for decal source.

So far haven't tried that Aluminum foil onto spokes & wheels. Shortly I will post some pics once I am done.
I have just started scratching onto rim & feels that this is going to work.

This is a beautiful bike. Older bikes (mean, old) show a great view about the compromise between speed and posture for the city commuter. And surely that's stylish Big Grin

Hello All
Here are few additions I did this week.The hand pump & tail lamp are in excellent working condition. And Bill..... I couldn't shine rims similar to other chrome parts on the bike, still it's better than before as you can see in hand pump picture.

You should start a thread and put these pictures in it. Very sorry I thought you were the original maker of this thread.
It is easy just go to the link below I provide and click the "New Thread" button and call it "Town and Country Trike"
