Identifying an Antique Pre 1940s?

Postby Retroracer » Mon Sep 24, 2018 12:51 pm

Hi all, Bit of a noobie but long time reader.

I have recently acquired a single speed antique bike that I am looking to restore back to original or at least rideable condition.

The owner said it was from the 1930's and has been left in a barn untouched since the 1950's?!

Identifying marks I have found so far.

Frame seat post serial number - 09699 G (letter G below the number)
Seat Post - A&P Made in England 4 (number 4 larger than the text)

Paint originally could have been red.

appreciate any information.

Speedwell, I’ll have a dig and see if I can come up with a reasonable guess at age.

Welcome.
and a photo with a first post. I am impressed.

have a close look at the inner face of the chainring and crank arms and see if you can see any stampings.

Probs not Williams gear unless it’s been changed.

Best guess something like 1939, could be 1938 , probably not 1940.
