G'Day Like.

There's a topic in the Info section covering posting of pics. Have a read and let a mod know if you need more help.

Cheers

Hi pro1200ute

is your Super Elliott trike a new bike or an old 1950's 1960's version with cast 'E' on the front of the frame.

I am rebuilding a 1950-60's Super Elliott tricycle, square nut hold the trike axle to the ladies 26" frame.

We have found a Super Elliot 26" front forks to replace the damaged one.

I am looking for any images of an Super Elliott tricycle. There is a listing on an old website from close Canberra Bicycle Museum http://www.collectionsaustralia.net.au/ ... tail/10102 , that has specification but no image.

Their email and website no longer function.

thanks for any help

I never knew Super Elliot did tricycles, i thought they were more of a pommy thing. I'd love to get my hands on a nice racing trike :) .

Malvern Star also did tricycles. Remember coming across this MS ad and thinking what an effort this must have been!

tonight I create a link to images of my bike as it is.

Just to tidy up, I suspect that the recent enquiry was another 'help me prepare my gumtree/ebay advert' whilst giving the impression that there was an interest in the bikes history.
There is strong circumstantial material to suggest that the Super Elliott trike is on sale on Gumtree in West Australia.
