Attached is a very poor picture of a beautiful bike I saw today in a bike shop window here. The only details on the bike was a badge on the front with a coloured feather, and the name Feather. It has wood tubulars and is a track bike. I've had a search and can't find any details. Has anyone any info on this bike?

I dont have any direct info of that bike. But my guess is that, its a 30's track bike. From the wood wheels and that stem, it looks 20's to 30's. Good luck trying to buy it [if thats what you wanted to do] It should fetch a pretty penny. EDIT: Heres a 1932 CCM that I found on the internet. http://img356.imageshack.us/img356/2924/1930ccmflyer0te.th.jpg (http://img356.imageshack.us/my.php?image=1930ccmflyer0te.jpg) Looks similar in year to that bike.

Thanks for the info. The bike didn't have a price tag on it so I assume it isn't on sale. The bike shop has a fair supply of vintage stock (much NOS) but also a large supply of "display only" stock also. I suspect the bike is only a tease.
I'll try to get back over there and ask the owner straight up what the go is.
ps. that frame does look very very close.

For anyone who is interested, the bike I saw and asked about earlier was a Fuji Feather. It is the bike shop owner's father's old track bike.
