Does anyone know anything about Hansom Bikes?

Does anyone know anything about Hansom bikes? It is said to be made in South Africa but what surprises me the most is that it has Columbus tubing. Anyway I was lucky enough to pick it up from a guy you was leaviing Hawaii to go to New Zealand and I just couldn't refuse. Now I have 3 bikes in my condo and testing the limits of my GF. Any info on Colombus Cromor tubing would be appreciated. Below are pictures of the bikes. Mahalo and Aloha!

Here's a bridgestone RADAC also that is part of my growing collection...until my GF complains.

The only references I can find suggest that the info about Hansom being a South African concern is correct. If that's what you've got, it would seem to be a quality bicycle.

What kind of components are on it?

Would it be possible for you to take photos of both bikes so that we can admire the drive sides?

Nice Bridgestone, too!
