1960s? ladies bike ID help please
Hi, Im new here. I bought a bike from the flea market and cant find anything about it. I hoped someone on here might be able to help?
Its a ladies bike with Sturmey Archer 3 speed gear and lights. I assume its 1960s. I had a 1955 Elswick Hopper that it reminds me of in colouring.
It is racing green and has handpainted gold detailing and a white arrow style emblem, along with a crest on the front and back that says "Prince of the road made in Birmingham". It has an unusual frame as it has 2 bars from the handle bars post, to the seat post. There is a rather large rack for the bag, it came with a white bag. I cant find any serial numbers on it except at the bottom of the seat post there is a OS 4/5 . There is a chrome "tip" to the front mudguard.
Its a lovely little bike, I would like to restore it for my own use. It is missing a pedal unfortunately and the tyres need replacing. I would like to know the make and year. Forgive me I know barely nothing about bike terminoligy, but I do love them!
If you can tell me anything about it, or if any specific photos would help I would be very grateful.
The wheels are about 26" and the handle bars and seat are raised really high, making it out of proportion in the pic, but they are jammed.
