1956 Viking Tour of Britain – SN 8011

1956 Tour of Britain SN 8011

 

Notes:

This bicycle is believed to have been supplied in 1957 when, according to catalogue information, the Tour of Britain model was not available, hence the 1956 date (subject as always to revision as we find out more). The reinforced rear brake bridge, an exclusive feature of the Tour of Britain model is clearly visible in the photographs, as are the Nervex Professional lugs.  The reinforced pump pegs are fitted but less obvious.  This frame has been refinished.  The components are substantially period-correct.  The frame has the highest Tour of Britain serial number currently on file and is the only one on the register with 4 digits.
