  • Selbach Phantom - c1930
    belonging to Midlands collector Mike Crumpton who was moving on to motorised bicycles We couldn t quite agree on the price he wanted more than I was comfortable with We settled I paid him his price and he threw in an extra machine This Selbach is that extra machine Thanks Mike you did me a favour The Features that make it special Although this Selbach frame dates from the early 1930 s most of the equipment is probably from the mid to later 1930 s with the exception of the wheels which were changed in 1948 The hubs are alloy small flange Blumfields paired with 26 x 1 inch hollow section Constrictor Asp rims Note that the spokes are the original black painted 15 17 gauge The pre war fluted back Chater Lea chainset is equipped with my favourite circa 1939 Chater Lea Race pedals with tommy bar fitting These were probably the very best pre war pedal available Were they the first to offer built in oil seals Note the tapered swan neck stem the only example that I ve ever found matched with what may well be Shallow Highgate handlebars a wonderful combination that looks stunning The Brooks B17 Champion Narrow saddle above can be identified as pre war by the in build bag loops cut into the leather It just goes to show just how good the quality of the leather was in Brooks saddles in the past modern ones only look similar this one is in very sound condition How many cycles still in regular use have their original pre war Bluemels celluloid mudguards above still in situ These ones with a patent date of 1934 marked on have the then required twelve square inches of white showing to the rear The alloy Constrictor Conloy brakes
