"Hmmm...I wonder what this bike needs to make it go?"



"I know, I'll bet it just needs a bit of aire in the tyre..."

Hmm this bike needs a lot of TLC. Luckily I just inject Evaporust through the convenient port to make this bike like new again!

Have any of the experts identified the machine as yet?

Unfortunately some explorer has already harvested its head emblem...

That scrubber brake puts it fairly far back one would think...

Do not know even in what land these images were made.

CL speak -

"Concours Ready!"

---

found this image which shows a bit better the chainset - cotterless

somewhat reminiscent of CCM, wonder if it could be a manner of Thun as now suspect photos from a german speaking land



drive is half inch pitch while brake is scrubber. would think this combination to bracket the machine somewhat in time...

---

found this image of the foot pump she is operating. while made in cathay it has a prominent word on the label in german, suggesting it was exported for sale in a german speaking country such as germany, austria, switzerland...
