Help with info on old Bike

Hi all

I ride currently ride 12km per day to work and have done so for many years mainly due to the fact we only have one car. I also ride with my sons on the weekend along the many great riding tracks we have around town. I'm not a expert nor a racer just your average yob who enjoys a ride

My son is currently restoring an old racing bike he found on a junk pile down the road. Itís a Cyclops Javelin. I have recently been given a much older bike the original stickers tell me itís an Oxford International. I was wondering if we have any resident experts on the forum that may be able to tell me some more about the Oxford International Bikes. The one I have been give was apparently used for racing but I have been unable to find out more.

Any help appreciated.

Can't help with any info but .... if you go here and post your question in the Retro Biking section, there's a couple of people on that forum who might be able to help.

You could also try the vintage sub-forum.

If it is an Australian specific frame the vintage subforum will be next to useless. Another resource would be the Canberra Bicycle Museum
