  2. There is a solution for the broken Photobucket image issue on forums. If you use Firefox or Chrome, go into the Extensions (Chrome) or Add-Ons (Firefox) and search for "Photobucket Embed Fix" - it will have an icon that looks like a green piece from a jigsaw puzzle. Install the extension/add-on, restart your browser (Chrome) and you should be able to see all of the Photbucket images again.

    I'm pretty positive it is not British. That style of brake is uncharacteristic of English bikes, more of something you'd expect to find on a Dutch or German bike.

    This 1939 German made Falke shares some similarities: http://oldbike.wordpress.com/1939-falke ... ad-german/

    It even appears to have a similar cotterless crank.

    The M on the chainguard, and the M motif on the chainwheel would seem to suggest some brand that starts with an M. Magneet maybe?
