    Mike, that's a very nice bike!

    It seems pretty uncomforatble having a bike strapped to your chest, but I suppose that is all relative when you're mad enough to jump of a fully functioning aircraft.

    Hi Adrian,

    This is Girish from India, recently I bought a para bike
    No decals or stickers seen on the bike, so don't know any more details.

    The original, pedals, handle grips and levers are missing. Is it possible to source original parts?

    Sorry for the quality of the picture.

    Thanks in advance
    Girish

    Hi Girish, welcome to the forum! Nice bike.

    Original parts are now very hard to find.

    If I see any for sale this summer at shows, I will let you know.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Thanks in advance

    I've got one of these bikes on the way-it's sitting in a Fedex depot at the moment. I've been gathering up a few extras for it. I just got a wartime "Everest" carrier for the front today, and I've had the wartime blackout lamp for the front for years now. I'm planning on displaying it with my M20 BSAs eventually.
