Beautifully crafted lugless frame No. 9797, check the Higgins register, I think about mid fifties could be a little later. It is fitted with the famous Higgins differential and incorporates a rear hub brake. Also with eccentric bottom bracket, original Higgins hubs front and rear laced with stainless steel spokes around period alloy rims.
Frame size c-c 22 1/2"
Top tube length 22 1/2"
GB stem 60mm(to suit me)
Mafac. canti brakes and levers
MKS pedals and toe clips
Campag down tube shifters, Campag front mech Shimano 600 rear mech with 5 speed block with 50T&34T double chain ring. There is a slight dink in the top tube hardly noticeable and a few minor scratches and blemishes otherwise paint work is very good. The trike set up as in the photos is fine for me although I would normally ride a bike the next size down , trikes are very forgiving you don't need the stand over height. Must go to finance purchase of motorbike also I do have another trike so how many do I need? Collection only and cash only please.
A tidy, repainted, lugless machine with Higgins differential, eccentric bottom bracket and rear hub brake
9797 is not listed in the Higgins register but 9793/5 & 6 are all listed as being made in January 1961.
The blogspot editing software cannot cope with all these illustrations.
So I have kept them small and arranged them one above the other for neatness.
Which I then had to correct in HTML to remove all the false spacing from the poor standard editing.
This auction closed on £454 after 6 bids!
