Vintage delivery bike
Don't you love our bike - I'm finding it difficult however to get any concrete evidence of who the maker was, built in the early 1940's it would have been the main mode of transport for the discerning tradesman of the day!
It has a 22" frame and a 16" front wheel and is very heavy. Absolutely horrible to ride - when you turn the wheel the basket doesn't move!
We were very tempted to sand it down and give it a good paint but somehow the bits of rust and flaked paint give it a nostalgic elegance - I hope you agree.
Uses for our vintage bicycle
Most clients who have hired our bike have used the baskets for flower displays; they make a great prop for photographs adding a vintage and rustic charm. However they look pretty cool filled with your bread selection next to the buffet, or with flip flops for weary feet, as a card and gift basket, for holding pashminas and blankets, a confetti holder. How about welcome drinks - fill the basket with Tea cups and park next to the booze!
We have created a pinterest board with some inspiration and ideas.
In February 2018 we were really pleased to come across our second delivery bike in an antiques shop and it is identical to the one in the advert shown!
