Over the next month I’ll advertise a variety of vintage bicycles and you are. Welcome to make (realistic) offers on them. 1902 ROYAL ENFIELD ROADSTER. Bowden cable-operated rear rim brake. ORIGINAL PALMER BEADED EDGE TYRE. A historic bicycle contemporary with the first Royal Enfield motorcycles. I obtained this Royal Enfield from a closed-down museum: it was missing mudguards, so I fitted replacements. The rear Bowden brake, introduced on Royal Enfields in 1901, is an attractive feature – it’s similar but smaller than the rear Bowden rim brakes used on early motorcycles. That and the inverted brake levers give it the appearance of a scaled-down Royal Enfield motorcycle. It has been mechanically restored but left in its original cosmetic condition, and it’s ready to ride apart from the fabulous original Palmer tyre on the front, which holds air but should be replaced for regular use.
