The Viscount is head of the badges.

So after an epic break in posting, here's a little something to keep the gears spinning, the pedals turning and all moving parts well greased. I only keep this blog for fun and to share the cool stuff, so when my work load goes crazy, I don't want it to become another chore.

But here's a Viscount head badge!

Neat neat neat! Normal posting will resume soon, with the usual mix of retro, vintage and weird bikes, as well as three new bike builds and details of an exciting pan-European bike trip!

Ride old bikes forever!

Peugeot Nouveau Folding Shopper Bike

Another bike from the bike sale on the green today. This one's a little 20 inch wheeled folding shopper bike from Peugeot... the Nouveau!

One of the nicest old Peugeot logos I've seen for a while.

Some 'Nouveau' touches!

Old Peugeot bike lettering.

And a neat little lamp.

A sensible vintage Peugeot folder!

Hercules carries on commuting

A good old fashioned bike logo for you today, from Hercules bike co. One of the local second hand bike shops brought their stock onto the Nottingham campus the other day, and this old 'commuter' stood out as the oldest... and most interesting!

Tatty but rad logo on the headtube.

Declaring its commuter intentions.

A nice old piece of steel. That should serve someone well for many a year yet.

Dave Quinn fixed gear retro dose

A crazy work schedule is keeping me away from the Bicycle Safari at the moment, but here's a little retro fixed gear treat for you. I've posted an awesome looking Harry Quinn bike before, but this is a Dave Quinn frame, and I don't fully understand the relationship between the two. Maybe someone will chip in on the comments!

Really nice lettering, just like on the Harry Quinn frame.


A nice little touch on the seat stays.

A neat classic looking modern bike!
