Steyr Clubman perfect vintage town bike

It never ceases to amaze me the bikes you find sitting around. This is a near mint condition vintage Steyr, apparently being at least occasionally used as someone's daily transport? Unusual and brilliant.

In particular it's the Steyr Clubman!

Some nice foil on the logo graphics.

Rad rad rad.

The brakes also seemed worthy of a mention.

But then again, so did the rear mudguard!
A bit of time warp.

  3. I had found a clubman in tact.All original,lights,the works.It was at a nonprofit that collected bikes to riase money for anti drig awareness.Anyways.It was stripped down to nothing.I now have the frame.How hard would it be to find forks?

  5. I have one of these which I purchased in about 1971 - they had very
    attractive yellow/gold/mottled plastic mudguards from new which
    looked great with the dark green paint...sadly they eventually fell
    apart, as is the way with such things. I got mine converted to a
    cotterless crank after a few months of buying it. It now resides
    in my shed & is pretty rough, but is about to be listed on ebay..
