    Default Bicycle, parachuter?

    Hi guys,

    Saw this bicycle on auction, and I find it really nice, but I am no expert on these in anyway, so some of you might be able to give your opinion on this.
    If anyone could help me towards a value ( to know what to bid) could you please pm me.

    Hi Karsten, this is a post war Danish made version.

    It has been fitted with a British made saddle.

    I think they are trying to pass it off as wartime by doing this.

    Note these features:

    wing nuts and mountings on the frame
    Lack of "BSA" sprocket
    Lack of BSA lamp holder
    Lack of brakes

    Each year I see these sold at Beltring by Danish dealers openly as Danish bikes.

    Cheers, Ade.

    I cannot now recall the price that the Danish bikes were selling for? Maybe around 350/400?

    Cheers, Ade.
