This is a complete wreck..... And yet, I am drawn to it!

And I don't know why.

It has the original paint work, etc and I imagine that after getting rid of all that rust (which admittedly would probably affect the surviving paint in places) and replacing the wheels, it would make a nice old, if slightly demic bike. If not, it could yield some parts as I have my own Humber.

To be honest, I just want to give that saddle a bit of much needed TLC!! :laugh:

The embarrassing thing and the whole point of this thread is that, despite learning all of this before, I have forgotten if that would be a pre or post 1932 example.

It is an overpriced rust bucket ready for the scrapyard, yes, and yet....:

Didn't look too bad to me, apart from that Brooks (definitely 'kippered')
I would love to get that Brooks, smother it in proofide, leave it for a while to fully soak in and then come back to polish it up and see what it is like! :blush:

Did that with the saddle on 'Clive' (which admittedly wasn't as bad) and it came up a treat. Yes, it has that shabby chic look about it, but it looks like a saddle with a long and colourful life!
