...bicycle, that is.

It's a "Princess" for my Wife. Mechanically sound, but needs some buffing.

Oh, wait. Is this forum for "motor" cycles?

I'm glad this forum doesn't have one of those "this thread is useless without pics" emoticon things...because I'd be tempted to use it

Seriously, though, a photo or two would be cool!

Sorry, I was just too excited.

Anyway, it's a b-day present for my Wife, so it's stashed away at a neighbor's house for the next couple of weeks.

I'll try to post pics and more info once I get it back out.

Guess I was not clear. This is not the "let me show off my new toy and direct you to my website detailing the extensive restoration of it" thread.

This is the "Hey, I just lived a GRM moment so thanks, GRM, for being there for me and giving me the support and resources I needed to just go for this 'trash to treasure' adventure."

Now, go away or I will taunt you a second time.

Will do.

The stuff from the early 20th century was actually made by Indian in America, and these are very collectible ($$$$). By 1951, Indian was importing bicycles made by Phillips and selling them as the "Princess" or the "Scout." They are a "typical English middleweight 3-speed" with a Sturmey-Archer hub.
