My Vintage Bike restoration projects


I have over a dozen vintage bikes of which some I can identify and include. Holdsworth?, Raleigh Tempest & Mercury & Hustler, Sun?, The Service England? Merlin? single speed and a beauty, Elswick Hopper Thunder Flash a girls bike,Peugeot x 2. This is going to be my first attempt to refurbish old bike, so I may be asking a few questions.

FRAME?
I need some help to identify this continental frame. There is a super look to this bike and it just feels class. I am going to use it this summer and would like to restore it to its original condition.

TANGE - HeadSet, CINELL - Bars & Stem, Lugs - ?

FRAME? Most of the parts are CAMPAGNOLO like the 57 Tooth Chainring, Cranks & Pedals,

MERLIN - HEAD BADGE - IS THERE A FACE IN THE BADGE AND IF SO WHO IS IT?

MERLIN

MERLIN

MERLIN - BAYLISS WILEY HUBS - PERRY & Co LTD BOTTOM BRACKET.

MERLIN

MERLIN FAME NUMBER 18453 AND A VILLIERS MODEL DELUXE.

MERLIN - Another bike which just feels class. Not certain yet which Merlin it is. Don't think its Bob Jackson and I am leaning towards an original, but the crome frame make me think it could be a Adam Hill bike who first bought the Merlin brand name in the early fifties and then sold it to Bob Jackon in 1955. The Villiers Model Deluxe were produced untill just after WW2. Not sure when Perry & Co stopped producing. It was thought they merged with Bayliss in 1926. I need someone to identify the head
badge, or frame number.
