Note all the interesting features on this ‘bitza’, more than your average speedsix though… Note the following-
-Export / S Deluxe type frame, note revised cable routing with single hole on drive side
-Airlite/ stainless or chromed?! Dunlop rim?? looks too shiny for alloy…
-Chrome plated front and rear forks, note spoke lock…
-I can put money on it that the rear carrier is chrome under that black paint?
-Notice the transfers have been applied much more centrally on the main beam, note this is often seen on works bikes.. S Speeds, Ken, has your Peter Lea not got transfers further down? The Marathon shows this too, and from memory was there a photo of your Lauterwasser Mk3 showing decals further down many years ago?
-Standard speedsix chainset,
-is there a damper on each side, or just on one?!
-Balilla levers etc etc..
-Balilla brake caliper on front
-and of course the front wheel looks straight from AM production… and of course the older gentleman he is talking about would have been the legendary JL himself.
Nice interesting bike, suspension looks smooth!
