27" one revolution at a time...
This looks a lot like my '73 Windsor Carerra Sport; except indelible is that the front chain ring on the bike I had, was with two rings much closer in size.
I've a bike now I believe also an early mid '70s Windsor Carerra Sport; assembled to ride rather than as any collector's item, from an unridable $20 Eureka, CA flea market find, recognized as highly familiar during '97.
I put a three ring Bio-Cam sprocket on the bike a long time ago, given me by a bike store mechanic; so have no idea what was on the bike as found, if anything?
I think hot-rodding 27" wheel size bikes a lot more natural than collecting and/or restoring them, no?
There is an informally run shop locally where they've several paid mechanics on staff with lots & lots of gleaned old 27" parts organized roughly in bins; a person can pick through to purchase for what amounts to a donation, of whatever one may chose as affordable.
