Up for sale are some nice English bike parts. Prices include shipping to the lower 48 United States. Payment by Paypal or USPS Money Order. If using Paypal, please add their fee to your payment amount. Shipping from Connecticut, USA.



PENDING 1. English Aluminum/hiduminium drop bars. I am not sure if this is a true Lauterwasser bend, or something that is just somewhat similar. It is an aggressive bend for someone who wants to ride down on the drops. Would go well on a Raleigh Lenton or Clubman from the late 1940s or early 1950s. Roughly 17-18 inches across. Drop is 5-ish inches. See photos with the tape measure. These bars are in generally good shape with some scratches and use, but no cracks or breaks. They are very light weight. You may need a stem/bar shim to mount these, depending on your stem type. These are quite difficult to find in the USA in this condition today. $150 shipped in the lower 48 states.






PENDING 2. A pair of stand-up, rotating Lucas bells. Both bells work, spin, and chime nicely. They have a kind of musical tone to them. One is missing its screw and clamp, but you should be able to find a donor clamp or even make your own from solid hose clamp donor stock. These stand-up, rotating bells are hide to find in working condition in the USA. $80 shipped in the lower 48 states for both bells.

3. A chrome face quadrant shifter. This is for the Sturmey K or AW hub. It may be a generic copy of the Sturmey branded quadrant, but is evidently pretty well constructed. It appears to be an old generic quadrant and not a reproduction. Flat internal spring is still solid and the shifter clicks nicely into each hole. Mounting screw could use a little clean up, but is a decent piece. $70 shipped in the lower 48 states.

4. A decent condition set of Birmingham Phillips cranks. 46 tooth chainring. Cranks will work on a 26 or 28 inch bike. Chrome has some scratches and small rust areas, but is in pretty good shape. See photos for condition. They should make a nice, smooth-running addition to your old Birmingham Phillips. Also not an easy item to find in the US. Most Phillips parts in the US today are from the later, Raleigh/TI era. $60 shipped in the lower 48 states.




5. Chain case/cover. This was an aftermarket part you could buy if you wanted to add a chain case/cover to your bike. It appears as part no. 295 in the 1939 Phillips catalog, and appears in other, later catalogs as well. It has a hollow back, and mounts with clamps (NOS clamps supplied - these appear to be a little newer). It also has the often-missing sliding tear drop cover. Please see the photo with the scale below the chain case to get an idea of the size. I believe this should go on a 28 inch wheel roadster bike. Paint is mostly original, but it does have some areas of new paint touch up. Color is basic black. $75 shipped in the lower 48 states.
