A Couple Of Oldies!

A couple of lovely old dispatch rider bikes form the wars, in amazingly good condition given their age, certainly outliving their original owners… the single speed messenger bikes of their day!

I imagine a it was one heck of a local loop though, two circuits of no-mans lad and then back for a mug of tea and a corn beef sarnie!

And yeah I know, the chain’s a bit slack!

Next a Hercules, once in service with the Swiss in both WW1 and WW2!

This was also in fantastic condition given its long service. I guess a few fellas used this between 1914 and 1945!
