Default Re: The Flying Pigeon

If boxcar doesn't mind..

My Rudge men's 3 speed.

23" mens frame from 1951, the hub shell and frame dates match, it has oiler spigots for both the hubs, bottom bracket, and the hub's sprocket driver is threaded so I think everything is original, except for the Robin Hood (Raleigh) fenders.

Unfortunately the Oregon coastal anodizing has had it's way with it, so it's not as nice looking as it was in this photo.

@ IWW yes, I agree, in fact I think the bicycle part of the Velo is the worst part of it, because it has stranded me several times miles out from home and pedaling this lump, with it's short frame is a lot of work.
