A few of our regular Cotters have backlog of bikes in the queue, and I’ve been skipping them in favor of new submitters. However, these regulars also have some very cool entries that can’t be ignored forever. That said, I’m going to *attempt* feature these bikes on Saturdays and/or Sundays. We’ll call it our Weekend Group Ride.
With all that out of the way, this is Billnuke1’s ?early 60s? Huffy Super 60 “Genuine English Lightweight”. What an outstanding find! A.) A Huffy you don’t feel half embarrassed to ride! B.) It was found it in a pile of Peugeots!
Bill, where do you go that you encounter ‘a pile of Peugeots’? The closest I’ve ever gotten was a pile of broken Simplex front derailers!
I don’t think that you have one of these! I found it in a pile of old Peugeots! The hubs are Bramptons or something like that. Hard to read until I can get them cleanned off. The wheels are 27 x 1-3/8 Sturmey Archers. The derailleurs are Huret and the seat looks like a Brooks. The brake levers are reddish Super Hood Rapides. The brakes are Coureur 66’s. Looks like decent lug work, too. The tires are rotting off of the surprisingly good wheels. They appear to be high pressure tires. I will try to read the name tomorrow. I can only find old ads when I google the bike! I haven’t even looked at the old Peugeots yet!
