Now there are two. Still no clues as to the make but the fact that a second one has shown up in Perth does make it look likely that it was locally built. Here's a link to number 2 (a pols, this will only work if you're on FB I think)... http://www.facebook.com/groups/retrocyc ... 190428939/


By the look of it you should go and get it, and bring it back to its former glory.

Don't have Facebook.
Is it the same as this one that was on ebay a few weeks ago..?

No, not that one.
I had a look, I may go get it, but it has a hole in the seat tube that probably means replacing the tube. It's project central in my garage already and I have a pair of broken wrists right now :-)

Came upon this quite by accident. I'm confident in saying that it's a Flying Arrow based on arrow shapes, frame number & quality of work. Flying Arrow was located in Rokeby Rd, Subiaco and run by Bill Kell. For a number of years his frame builder was Milton Jones. It's a fine frame I would be happy to part with cash for it! If this thread is still active, I can direct you to Flying Arrows on the Milton Jones register hosted by the WA Historical Cycle Club.

It's definitely a Flying Arrow. Wonder where it is now? Maybe Mal Jones has it.
