Posting on behalf of a mate.

Sunbeam Scorcher COMPLETE.

Black. All original components except tyres. In excellent condition considering age.

This is a reluctant sale, has been only ridden a few times to the milk bar!!

Please PM any expressions of interest.

Apologies for no price but this is a very reluctant sale.

Might be worth contacting the powerhouse museum to see if they are interested in purchasing it.

You know, I'd feel guilty if I bought it - it really does belong in a museum.

This one then...

Image
“The Scorching Sunbeam” appeared in 1899. It was a cheap machine without brakes, mudguards, or gear case. An important introduction in 1900 was the roller type free-wheel, with the bearings continuously lubricated by oil dripping from the cog and splashing up from the chain. The introduction of the free-wheel meant that more effective braking was required, so two brakes were introduced, a rod operated front rim brake and a pedal operated (back-pedalling) rear brake. Free-wheel and back-pedalling brake were an optional extra on all models. (according to Wolverhampton Heritage & History Website)

Can you pm me some details (ie $) please

All PM's answered.

Just in regards, to this bike, I am posting as a favour to a mate. So apologies if the info is a little wishy washy.

I feel like the meat in the sandwich!!

I will upload pics as soon as I can get em.
