This bike showed up on Kijiji, Toronto today at a very reasonable $35.00.
Listed as an on old English bicycle, it’s actually from India and would be the good basis for a vintage Path Racer.
28″ wheels, rod and lever brakes, drop bars and a double top tube!
An odd bike from India, a Winchester with a very old style to it. The story of this particular bicycle can be found here.
I bought one years ago and made it into a Path Racer of sorts.
And here’s another one from the Rat Rod Bikes site.
