Vintage Racer - 1930

We were going through some old family photos the other day and I cam across this one of my grandfather, which he had marked as being from 1930. I'd never seen this photo before although I had seen one of him on this bike from 8 years later with my aunt riding on the top tube.

Can anyone ID the bike from this poor resolution crop of the head tube badge? What's the crankset with those lion shaped cutouts?

Bingo. What a great bike to have now. As with many fixed gears of the period, rear brake only.

Here is a catalog page from 1924. Your grandfather's bike shows many simularities to the Peugeot Sport

Yep Peugeot had that 3 lion crankset between a period 1909 - 1936. Here is mine from the early twenties.



Mine is a different model or year than your granddads, the fork crown is different.
