I'd like to draw upon your collective expertise.
A work colleague has sent me these pics of a bike he's just got and hopes to restore to use as a prop at the annual "War and Peace" military show. He thinks it dates from 1932 - I don't know why, probably the seller told him so. No badge holes in head tube, the number H120 is stamped under the BB and UU909 on one of the rear drop-outs (don't yet know which side).
That wing nut stem bolt arrangement is new to me. It suggests military spec, so the bars could quickly be twisted in line with the frame and a whole bunch of bikes stacked together in the back of a truck?
I've seen that style of front brake before but can't remember where. The hole in the left lower head lug looks to be a rod brake linkage pivot point but the Endrick rims wouldn't work with the old style stirrup rod brakes so the rear brake may be a factory upgrade.
That Wright's mattress saddle looks to be beyond redemption. Box lining on the mudguards plus the white patch on the rear might suggest 1940's? The cranked seat post also suggests that era to me - but I know little!
Any thoughts, ideas or info that might help tie down the make, model, age or anything else about this tired old machine? Any and all suggestions welcomed and appreciated! Loads of photos so may have to post several posts.
