    Here's my '65 Hercules. Not quite a Guv'nor bike but all British. I'm running a ' 69 Sturmey S-5 Five speed hub I laced to a Raleigh hoop in the back. I have since put some more aggressive 'knobbier' tires on it. I use it on the rail trail in town. It flies!

    While my up-dated roadster does not share the Guv'nors turned down bars/fast look,it does share the 40-635 rim size of the original english roadsters.And in alum rims too.I added modern V brakes and a 5 speed derailer.Lighting is a S/A dyno to a vintage tea cup headlight.

    What makes the Pashly special is that they still make old style bikes, but we can build our own. (imagine smily here)

    vintage drop bars from a malvern star path racer around the late forties

    the gear ratio is 52 16 and its a freewheel, its the high speed straight down the highway bike

    takes some time to get it up there but once you got her wound up she humps along very very nice

    I absolutely love your bike, man... you did a great job with it! Did you build the wheels yourself?

    Blackadder is my take on the classic English path racer. I set myself the challenge to build the bike with mostly new parts for less than its handbuilt English counterpart. Sure, Blackadder doesn’t have a Reynolds 531 frame and a long wheelbase, but it’s not too shabby. Actually I started with a Raleigh Record Ace frame, supposedly a non-export frame since it has pump pegs under the top tube. I laced the wheelset myself using Sturmey Archer hubs and Sun CR-18 rims. The project was finished so late in the season that I’ve only logged a couple of miles. I’m looking forward to some excellent rides starting in the spring.
