  • Granby Restoration
    some points of general interest Namely the original finish and the frame geometry There is a 1938 9 Granby catalogue originating from Madgett Cycles several copies of which are in the public domain The easiest way of accessing the catalogue if you don t have a one is to obtain a copy of Lightweight Cycle Catalogues vol 2 published by John Pinkerton Memorial Publishing Fund and possibly still available from the Veteran Cycle Club club sales Also available from the VCC library via the National Cycle Museum web site Images of the relevant pages are included with this piece See the catalogue page giving details of Granby s exclusive features note 1 This cycle displays all of them The Granby drop out adjuster not fitted forward mounted saddle post bolt the squared chain stays and although the reader can t see it the Granby bottom bracket Original finish see as found image below which shows the remains of the original finish The frame and forks were chrome plated all over The fork and stay ends and possibly the fork crown were masked off The cycle was then sprayed with a translucent gold lacquer It was an expensive though I believe quite popular finish and when new must have looked spectacular This type of finish fell from favour in later years being replaced by pearlescent and metal flake Unfortunately time has taken its toll When new the finish must have been quite delicate any scratch would go right through to the chrome How could it be touched up to achieve the same depth of colour Over time the translucent gold has turned to a thick murky brown The remains of the paint were stripped The chrome was elecrolytically removed i e put in the chrome plating bath with the electric current
