Any clues guys? Pulled it out of a local tip about 20 years ago as a bare frame.

Possibly late 1940's. Someone has gone to a lot of trouble! Those arrow heads could be purchased as a separate item to be brazed onto frames. In this case added to the lugs. Educated guess, it was made in Adelaide.

Hard to see under the paint, but made in England stamped on the bottom. I'd guessed late 40s from looking at other frames. its very light also.

The 'Made in England' cast into the BB shell just means that the shell was made in England. These BB shells are common to many bikes, including a lot of Malvern Stars, which causes lots of confusion. Yes, this would be light, a high end frame, someone's pride and joy, and expensive at the time.

Very nice frame, great save. However you might want to take the forks to a frame builder for repair, as they look to have taken a frontal hit at some point - that tucked-in angle just doesn't look correct. Last thing you want is them failing underneath you when riding! Perhaps check the top and down-tubes as well?

Hi,
I have a Healing bike, frame number 12945, that my grandfather acquired at a garage sale about 30 years ago. Unfortunately the original paintwork was gone before he acquired it, but it has the distinctive brazed-on 'H' head tube, and decorative lugs that don't seem to match the shape of any others I've seen browsing through this thread.

Some photos (and a work-in-progress story about the bike) at this link >> http://pedallingstories.blogspot.com.au ... ation.html

Cheers
Tim

#12945
The 'keyhole' lugs would suggest this is a mid to late 1930's build. Say 1936 to 1939.
The different serial number on the forks would suggest that these are not the original forks. The number on the steerer tube is usually the same as on the frame, or an abbreviated version of it, say the last three or four digits. A nice frame, with a good back story.

Hi, I have an old Healing women's bike with the number 46759 under the seat and under the crank 851. I have had it for over 40 years and am about to have it restored to its former glory. Can anyone give me an idea when it was made ?

Hi i bought an old complete healing bike that was completely rusty which i have restored trying to keep it original. The wheels were completed rusted out and i had to paint it as paint was barely visible. The number near the pedals is -113 and on the seat stock is x 19299. I hope someone maybe able to give me some information on this bike. As i said i have replaced wheels and am currently restoring mudguards and handlebars.

welcome Kerry-Anne. You will need to have them uploaded to a hosting site like Photobucket or Flickr
then when they are uploaded you link them. This is how I do it.

Also Kerry, I'm not totally certain, but I think you may need to make a small minimum number of posts before the forum will let you post a link. A lot of forums do this to reduce spam.

Hi I bought my Healing off zbey, with house paint and cracked rear brake bridge. I've welded the bridge and many hours of wet & dry and painted with spray cans (about 10 coats in all). My rego no is 6040 stamped on seat post lug. It's a very light frame and has a chrome "H" on steering tube. This rego seems outside of range of others- any ideas why? Paul

First addition to this thread for over a year and looking through the posts it further enforced to me what a loss to researchers the photobucket decision was.

The serial number of this one is 57263
Bolt on seat stays. Lucznik rear hub.
Still some chrome showing on the head tube H.
Unknown year.

Threads are a bit like bikes - bit of a polish & they are as good as new. :)

Inspired by a bit of activity on the topic, here is an update on the frame/bike in my post back in 2013 on page 2 of this topic.

I just got my frame back. Painted by Kevin Wigham, pinstriping by Ken Dickie, decals from Cyclomondo (based on artwork that I did from scans of the originals). The decals are now available from Cyclomondo.

The main colour is a really rich metallic magenta - the image doesn't do it justice.

Hi all need a little help identifying a Healing I found in back of fathers shed, seems to have original paint and in ridable condition. I was wondering on year and value? Can anyone help?

C'mon Larks, I'm going to save someone else the hassle. I won't post pictures here but in order for any detailed information we need pictures, frame number and location, parts on it, wheel size etc etc. I mean look at the thread heading. Serial number is in it and you haven't mentioned it. By the way I have two pieces of string, could you tell how long each one is, but also which I'm holding in my left hand...hint they aren't the same size. Yes I'm being obnoxious.

Now seriously.

If you are hoping for a valuation so it can be listed on eBay members here who spend a lot of time helping others and sharing knowledge take a dim view on these sorts of questions. They are also a little more polite than me. Have a look at the various posts and general vibe to get an idea.

If you are looking to restore a family bike here is the place, if looking to make a buck, at least offer it to others here.

Fair call moderator. I didn't know it was moved.

I've had a bex and a lay down.

Unfortunately we are still a long way from finding out whether Larks has a gem, his surname may be Mockridge or a complete dud that he believes is worth thousands.

Oh the thankless job of moderating. Now I know why I generally keep away from contributing. Keep up the great work (and I mean that sincerely).
