WANTED:   English three-speed parts wanted posted by: Geoff Rogers on 4/11/2005 at 5:40:21 PM
I am looking for some three-speed parts for my growing collection of old British iron. Specifically, I want frame pumps, English or otherwise, Brooks leather saddles in good or better condition, early S-A triggers, and almost anything old and British. I have a lot of stuff to trade, including several complete 3-speed bikes, some really nice, others pretty rough, or I can pay cash.

I'm sure my bike had 20" tires. I was 6 years old when I got it. If you have any photos of your bike, I would enjoy seeing them and see if we can strike a deal. Thanks for the response!
