Well another year is rapidly coming to a close .
And what a year .
I have covered over 5500 miles with a week to go .
I have discovered some new names .
And been reunited with some old friends .
All in all it hasn’t been that bad , how has your 2018 been ?
1955 Rotrax outside Hannington Hall
It’s been a while since I have posted anything for various reasons .
But the good news I am still buying, selling , tinkering and riding retro bikes .
So i thought i would share some pictures of one of my latest bikes , it’s a 1955 Rotrax bike that was previously owned by a lady rider from the Southampton / Portsmouth area and used this bike for time trialing etc etc . I was told that at some point it was refinished by Rotrax and then rebuilt but sadly it hadn’t been used since this refinish .
I have always wanted a Rotrax for ages mainly due to the stories that my mother always tells about her pink Rotrax that she use to ride on all those years ago .
Its got some slight later bits on but the calipers and hubs are all from the correct period other parts are more later additions .
