It seems they do exist (or once did). Neither Continental nor Schwalbe make them, however. I suppose that's because they were an English size. Try someone at Vintage Cycle Club in England?

Hi-
I'm looking for a pump that clipped onto the frame between two points on bikes of the 50's/60's. I'd prefer one in good working condition.
Thanks,
Sam

Rosemarie,

Not really enough information to go on, a picture might help. It's certainly not a make I've ever seen here in the UK. However it may be an English made / USA constructed import sold by a store, garage, filling station etc. The Three speed rear hub is probably Sturmey Archer and may well have a date on it like 10 75 which would indicate October 1975 have a clean of the hub and see.

Perhaps a cycle shop or town registration sticker for Grosse Point Farms, Michigan? I'd guess it was a private brand for a US distributor/retail chain. If the fender attaches BEHIND the rear axle, it was built by Raleigh. Check the date, as Matthew suggests. If its tires are marked 28" you might be able to sell it for a little $$; if 26" much cheaper.
