Invicta Female Project

I'm really new to old bikes. I was given this old Invicta bicycle from my father. I'm turning it into a fixie for my girlfriends birthday. It used to be a 3 speed.

What is the history on these Invicta bikes? I can't seem to find any information about them.









Regards,
Justin

It is one of the many Raleigh-built framesets with a 3rd party name on it. Raleigh was known for putting anyone's name and decals on their framesets if one so wished.

Is that a Specialized Armadillo tire on the back. I just bought a set of them for my Bianchi because A: I wanted the red sidewall and B: I've been running a set of 26 inch ers on my commuter for 3 years and no flats

Man, does that ever look strange at the moment - with that new wheel & tire on back.

BTW Raleigh did farm out their bikes, didn't they?
I had a 1973 Supercycle that was a Raleigh-made machine...guy who posted the ad for that one claimed 1940's as the date, but a quick look at the ole SA-AW cleared that up...
