WANTED:   PHILLIPS LOW GRAVITY posted by: GERARDO GONZALEZ on 12/8/2002 at 3:04:05 AM

I'm Looking Help to identify my phillips bike, where (if exist)I can check the serial number,where I can get some parts for it. The bike is in good condition but I want to restore it better. I will apreciate any help. God bless everybody. Thanks .... Gerry << Puerto Rico >>

   RE:WANTED:   PHILLIPS LOW GRAVITY posted by humberchristopher28@hotmail.com on 12/12/2002 at 2:11:05 AM
There are no serial numbers for Phillips that we have. No chart. Believe it or not this is not the way that you will go about identifing it.
You will have to watch e- bay and e- mail folks and follow the English Roadsters section and ask them.
P.C. Kohler has a "Roll Britannia" web group and if you keep scrolling backwards you should see the address. He has Phillips photos and information for you to see.
Records are lost, missing , in the hands of folks who don't take time to catalog this as a public service to old bicycle fans. But Oh Yes! This stuff is still out there, bit and pieces scattered about. Collectors have this very bike and they ride them. You will have to stay on this for awhile. Someplace, you need to have pictures posted o the web for us to see this bicycle that you have so we can help you determine what it is that you have and what it is generally worth.

Please describe it in fine detail for us. What size wheels, frame, things like that. Go to the English Roadsters section. Good Luck
