This one is from about 1963, this too I replaced the 20 tooth sprocket
with a brand new 22, the wheel was more centred and it seemed better
to ride. The old 20 went on to the smaller bike.

The dynohub works. I believe one tyre is probably the original, it has
a red pin stripe. One rim was made in Japan, the other in England,
making me think the dynohub was an optional extra, the wheel assembled
in Australia. I have since replaced the tyres, but have kept the old
ones.

The seat was plastic/vinyl, falling apart, a shoe repair place made
new top for it. It did have a rear panel originally, the back was not
exposed the way it is now.
