Here are photos of my ladies Speedwell loop frame bike. I picked it up from Bargo Lifeline shop several years ago.
It looks similar to a 1930’s Ladies Healing in the “Bicycle Frame Timeline” on the Australian Bicycle History Centre Website
The frame is in excellent condition with the number 43247 imprinted near a dropout. I can find no other number on it.
The chrome has only minor rust. (A little bit of pitting), I’ve cleaned it up quite well using aluminium foil, although it is still a little rough in places.
It has back-pedal Sachs Komet Super brakes that are very heavy and slow to use, and I am told that is quite normal for the brake type.
I don’t know if the wheels are contemporary with the frame.
If anyone can tell me more about it, I would be grateful.
I’d like to get mudguards and a chain guard for it. I can make a skirt guard.
