This is a superb unrestored Airborne, in amazing original condition, and fitted with sought-after accessories.
– Restored bicycles are shiny, usually more shiny than when they were new! They can not be described as original. The ultimate is always an original unrestored example in this condition. They do not come up very often. They are never cheap. But the best in its class is always a good investment. This is your opportunity to own one.
I have customers all over the world. I pack well, and ship fast by UPS. Communication is first class. One week after purchase, you’ll be riding it yourself…
SUMMARY: Everything is original and correct on this bike. It has correct handlebar grips. Some of the pictures show the earlier grips it had when I bought it, but I’ve since replaced them with correct BSA latex grips, seen in the other pictures.
There’s a font carrier rack with bag.
BSA 40 saddle with toolbag attached and BSA tools inside.
War Grade tyres: I fitted period road tyres so I could ride this bike (I ride everything before I sell it). I will leave the road tyres on. But the bike will be sold with an additional pair of matching Dunlop War Grade tyres too, so you can fit them for a show or display.
Period Bluemells inflator pump.
The sliding pedals are in first class order, sliding in and out with ease and locking in position. The bike folds easily. It’s mechanically sorted and ready to use.
The paint is really excellent, with both of its original transfers intact and easily readable.
