PRESTO TONI MERKENS DROOPY TRACK STEM NOS c1948-55 This design of stem curves gently downwards to offer a good low position especially important in the 40s and 50s when your Œcorrect¹ size of frame was larger than it is today. It is in virtually perfect condition and would be an excellent talking point on any track or time trial machine of the period. $55

CONSTRICTOR/BSA 1in PITCH TRACK SET suitable for a 1930s/40s track bicycle.

These parts are all very rare and were the top equipment used on 1930s track bikes. The cranks are in very good condition though the plating is a little worn and dull but there is very little pitting. The chainring is only lightly used and the chrome plating is generally excellent - there is just a very little faint pitting in one small area. $275.

This is is a rare opportunity to buy this standard work. $45

KARRIMOR SADDLEBAG 1950s The canvas is quite a bit coarser than later ones. Some of the leather edge trimming is missing but there are no holes and the straps are still fine. $40

HOLDSWORTH LA QUELDA FRAME c1947-8 23in bronze welded (fillet brazed). The frame number indicates that this is an early post WWII frame probably around 1948. Although it needs a repaint there is a lot of the original finish still showing including fabulous green and gold lining and a wonderful Œspearpoint¹ head tube. All the transfers are available and I can arrange for this frame to be refinished in the UK to the original design or can supply transfers both at extra cost. It comes complete with a Hobbs Lytalloy headset and a British bottom bracket. There is no frame damage apart from an inexplicable dent to the top of the fork crown on one side - this is shown in one of the photos. This could easily be be filled with a little braze before rechroming. This frame will look absolutely gorgeous once restored. Photographs are available. $185

MACLEANS 20in frame c.1948 This is a lovely Macleans 20in frame from the early post war years. The lugs are ŒOscar Egg¹ type, there¹s lovely gently curved rear brake bridge and the forks have a wonderful two plate crown. Period frames from the post-war years, this small, are quite rare. The paintwork is non original but the transfers are available and I can arrange for this frame to be refinished in the UK or can supply transfers both at extra cost. The frame appears to be completely straight and I could not spot any dings. Macleans were one of the first British Œlightweight¹ framebuilders setting up in business in 1919 and they continued through into the early 60s before being taken over by the Holdsworthy Company. Photographs are available. $145
