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.
When I first saw the Pashley Path Racer I desperately wanted one but couldn’t justify the price. I decided to build my own verison and looked around for a suitable bicycle to base it on.
I found this rod and lever Windsor on Kijiji in Newmarket and bought it.
It had the right geometry and the double top tube was a real incentive.
Despite looking extensively for any information on Windsor bicycles nothing came up, until today.
There was a Windsor factory in Mexico during the 60’s and seventies but I suspect that my bike was made in India.
