BSA WW II Airborne Paratrooper Folding Bike Frame and Components

BSA WW II Airborne Folding Bike Frame (2nd pattern) with Components (1942-1945)

This is a rare piece of military bicycling history that hardly ever comes up for sale.

Components include:
frame
forks
headset
stem (including Tommy-bar)
handlebars
grips
complete front and rear brake assemblies (calipers, brake levers, and cables)
bottom bracket
cranks/sprocket
pedals
chain (extremely rusty)
seat post clamp
seat post

Serial # 54451

Frame, forks, stem, and bars have been spray-painted, however, it came off with my fingernail as you can see in the serial number photo. It will restore beautifully.

Wing nuts function and bike easily folds as pictured. Ingenious design!

No cracks, breaks, or bends in the frame and forks.

Brake calipers are gunked up, but they do function when levers are squeezed.

Headset and bottom bracket turn freely.

It is possible the pedals are not original to this bike, however, they do look similar to the sets mounted to the BSA WW I folding bikes 1st pattern).

Frame with components weight: 19 lbs. I suspect the shipping weight will be close to double, including the box and packing.

$795.00

Shipping in US including insurance $95.00

Please contact me for an international shipping quote.

Payment through Paypal (as you would buy on Ebay, NOT as a Friend. This way the buyer and myself are protected.

Contact me with any questions or if you require more photos.
