1950-51 Viking Master SS – SN 095F

1950-51 Viking Master SS

 

Nicely restored 1950/51 Viking Master SS racing bicycle equipped to simulate Ian Steel’s 1951 Tour of Britain winning bike (bars and crankset to be replaced at a future date).  This frame has the early chromed brass headbadge and the seat stay tops only seen (so far) on 1950-52 Master SS and early Tour of Britain frames.

Specific features are the Cyclo Benelux gears with front derailleur operated by handlebar end control with Sturmey Archer cable stop and pulley routing the cable along the top tube and down the seat tube.  Also features Gnutti quick-release hubs and the LAM brake levers, favoured by Ian Steel, operating GB Coureur callipers.

Owner: Ralph Jones, Gwynedd North Wales
