Black Higgins trike on eBay

 Higgins Trike
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"
Cranks 170mm
GB stem 60mm(to suit me)
Fiamme bars
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
Nicely photographed too.

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! 
A good price for a Higgins!
