â€œThe Scorching Sunbeamâ€ 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
