It has a 9hp 1157cc motor with a single speed transmission, pedal start and hand clutch.
To brake you pedal backwards.
Bob imported the bike from the USA. It was in a bike catalogue from Sears, Roebuck and Co in Chicago.
You could only order from the catalogue by paying a 25% deposit.
The rest was paid on delivery. If you did not like it you could send it back. In 1913, the bike cost US$205.
Stating the (hopefully) obvious: the before shot on the left and the after shot below.
If you have restored a bike please send us a photo of before and after and include a picture of yourself.
A bit of detail about the bike would be great too. Please send to me at email@example.com.
Photos should not be reduced in size or quality. I look forward to seeing the results of a lot of hard work.
