I bought this interesting early diamond frame safety some time ago in France. The text on the rear hub makes clear it's a George Townsend from Redditch.
There is no brake spoon attached.
I'am looking for any info or details or other bicycles by this maker. Please give me your tips!!
In the bracket two letters say 'WT' - it could well be the initials of the foundry.
The serial number 4838 is stanped in many parts: front of the lower head lug, inside crank arms. Top of front fork etc.
I found an advertisement of the George Townsend model 'Ecossais' on the French Tontonvelo-forum.
I'am looking for any info or details or other bicycles by this maker. I need for instance some pictures of the original brake spoon. Please give me your tips!!, send me an e-mail.
