TOMMY GODWIN TRACK BICYCLE 22 3/4in centre bottom bracket to top of top tube and centre to centre top tube. Probably 1960s. No mudguard eyes but drilled fork crown. All chrome forks with chrome in very good condition. Nervex Pro lugs. Campagnolo Pista 170mm chainset, with 52T ring. Date 3 in a circle indicating 1983 chainset. Chainset shows no marks at all. Paintwork was redone in black with correct original transfers at same time. Paintwork is very useable but there are a few small scratches marks. Tommy Godwin was a well known track cyclist who set up a bike shop in Birmingham in the late 1950s I think. Cinelli aluminium track bars with engraved crests either side of stem - bars are perfect stem shows a few very light marks. Cinelli Unicanitor leather topped saddle on Nuovo Record seatpin. Nuovo Record bottom bracket, and steel Record headset. No pedals. Wheels are optional - Campag Pista 28H on Super Champion Competition rims with 15/17g stainless spokes. This is a lovely track machine that could be ridden on the track or road with the addition of a front brake. Pictures can be viewed at The bars and stem are not shown but pictures can be emailed on request. With wheels $695, without wheels $495.

BLUEMELS BLACK FEATHERWEIGHT PUMP 15in. Very good condition, very slightly faded but excellent for 50s British bike $35

LAMBERT CENTRE-PULL BRAKESET NOS levers and callipers, no straddle wires, bridges or stops. Perfect condition $45

ZEUS ALFA BRAKESET Excellent lightly used condition with Universal brake blocks, complete with straddle wires and levers. These are a very close imitation of the Mafac Dural Forge Racers even down to being engraved Dural Forge. Must be from 1960s or early 70s. $65

PHILLIPS LEATHER RACING SADDLE Very close in shape and dimensions to a Brooks B17. Excellent thick leather hide, very lightly used with just a few minor marks. I certainly did not know Phillips ever sold this type of saddle under their own name and I rather suspect it was made by Brooks for them. $55

THE PENGUIN BOOK OF THE BICYCLE by Rod Watson and Martin Gray 1978 333pp This very underrated book covers cycle history, the contemporary scene at the end of the 70s (mostly in Britain) and has a superb chapter on the contemporary cycle British cycle industry.

Reynolds 1/2 x 3/32in NOS derailleur chain in original box, perfect condition especially good for older derailleurs where there¹s a largish gap between the top derailleur pulley and sprockets as this chain is stiffer than modern chains $25
