Progress to date on the BSA Gold Vase. It's been a case of trying to use parts that I've got lying around and matching up the patina to the frame. The bars and stem I had bought simply because I liked the shape and that they had the original John Bull grips. They're alloy bars with a nice moustache bend. The wheels are tandem type with British Hub hubs, they fit and are with a three speed block to match the Cyclo gear hanger. I might just fit the end product with a auxiliary cyclemotor engine so the extra braking power will be useful. A pair of Bluemels Airweight alloy mudguards picked up on the bay of E look right as does the Dorset Saddle I bought a short while back.
Just a chainset to find and then renovate the whole lot and we'll be rolling.
|Just about everything collected to build up a cycle now. Just|
lacking a chainset.
|The Cyclo derailleur I had lying around has turned|
out to be a little bit less functional than hoped for.
Twisted and rusted but it should free up and bend
back in to shape.
|Original BSA Gold Vase transfer.|
|Sweet badge on the Bluemels Air Weight|
|Original period John Bull handlebar grips.|
|New old stock Lucas bell from the jet age was lying around|
unused and looks a treat on the Beesa.
|Handlebars, a stylish moustache bend. Cyclo changer is seized|
up so may need new cables making.
|Miller headlight with a Terry's clamp on bracket.|
Need a rear light to go with it plus maybe a dynamo
or battery pack.
