Bullock of Adelaide

Postby healey100 » Sat Apr 07, 2018 5:51 pm

Hi all,

I have recently renewed my interest in vintage bikes! This c1930 Bullock of Adelaide I recently found got me back into it.

It's also been a year or two since I posted.

It cant be more Adelaide with a SA Brewing crate on the back. New 28 x 2 1/2 tyres are n their way. Love those moustache bars.
I was hoping to find a Coopers Ale wood crate - any out there? ( my favourite beer even though it looks like Adelaide creek water)

Thanks to Philip (Clydesdale Scot) for being the custodian of the Bullock frame dating documentation.

Cheers

Dimitri

Only because Dimitri loaned me the documentation in the first place and I scanned it!

There are ways of printing onto a crate to give a reasonable impression of antiquity.

Here is a reference to an early Bullock from 1901, frame number 00179

Sad story and not far from us on the Belair Road.
