Vintage mid-century Super Elliott single speed roadster style bike with track-style fixie rear dropouts in near original condition.

Lugged steel construction, Australian made cycling history with (original?) Tubemakers of Australia Ltd decal and Super Elliott transfers faded but beautiful shop pin-striping evident on frame and mudguards.

28" tyres and one tube were replaced when the headset, bottom bracket and rear coaster brake hub were stripped and regreased a couple of years ago, and the bike was then in rideable condition (with the addition of a front centre pull brake, not included). Otherwise appears to be all original.

One size fits most adults; ST 55cm C-C, TT 58 cm with approx. 80 cm standover height.

Would make a great display bike (it may have featured in a magazine shoot recently!) or pump up the tyres, grease the train and add a brake (and bell) to make it rideable again. I used it as an occasional commuter and pub bike for a while, but it has since gathered a little dust. The last time I rode it the coaster brake appeared to be slipping a little (perhaps it was regreased a little too generously). A wipe down with an oily rag would restore the patina as per the photos.

Sprung, imitation leather Brooks-style saddle for added comfort and handlebars were flipped up postie-style when it came into my hands about 5 years ago as a rescue bike. I flipped them over path-racer style, but this trusty steed is no lightweight modern racer.

Modern reproductions of this style of bike sell for hundreds, but this original has far more character and charm.

I'm happy to answer any questions.

Local pickup or the successful bidder may arrange for a courier.

Happy bidding!
