I bought a complete bicycle at a rally in South Lincolnshire a couple of weeks ago - a 1938 Bird-Bourne racer. 3 Conloy 26inch wheels, with both FM and double fixed rears. The brake levers are non-period Favorit, which I thought strange as the brakes are Monitor. So, anyone know of the maker? And anyone have a pair of Monitor levers that they would sell? Anyone want to buy a pair of best Bohemian Favorit levers? The bike has been refinished by Bob Jackson at some stage so final request, anyone know what an original Bord-Bourne should have transfer-wise?
