Vintage Humber Light Roadster Path Racer. Very authentic looking reproduction of an Edwardian path racer , using a 1950's Humber light roadster frame and forks as a base, fitted with quality new and vintage parts. This machine has been built by a pro bike tech with 37 years experience with an extensive workshop , so all work is to a high standard. This is a large and imposing bike , suited to the taller rider , pictured set for me at 6. This frame has perfect path racer credentials , with it's slack angles and reverse (track) rear fork ends.
Frame is good and solid , has been repainted are few times in it's life and is now displaying plenty of'patina' just as in should. The distinctive and very cool Duplex forks are in great shape , these were fitted by Humber to their higher end bikes to a give a plusher ride. Original lamp bracket with'H' cutout present. Really nice set of hand built wheels , Front has a vintage hub complete with NOS wing nuts laced to a new chrome rim. Rear features a new coaster hub laced to a new chrome rim , both wheels have new spokes.
New Schwalbe creame Delta tyres are fitted , with puncture resistance. Original'dancing men' cutout Humber Chainset with new bearings and cottor pins. Lovely pair of period chrome'rat trap' pedals. A new coaster (pedal back) hub brake takes care of stopping , I find these work much better than the original rod brakes.
And is in keeping with the minimal racer lines. A glorious Brooks B73 front and rear sprung saddle is fitted , well worn'patina' but comfortable. Chrome downturn North Road bars.
