Vintage 3 Speed English Bicycles


Cheap Eatons Glider

I’ve done a quick rebuild on this one. Originally a 5 speed, I bought the frame for $20.00 and spent as little as possible to put it back together. Not much to look at but it rides fine and stops…

The rear wheel has a 1968 Sturmey Archer Coaster hub and there’s a single caliper on the front.


Total cost on this one:

Frame @ $20.00

Back Wheel and tire @ $10.00

2 cotter pins @ $2.00

Supplies @ $5.00

Everything else was either on the frame or came from pieces in the shed.

Frame also came with a nice period kickstand which will migrate over to one of my bikes in need.


This will either go to a former student (at cost) or be a loaner for a friend who’s coming to visit.
