The Raleigh bicycles are once again available for a couple of years now. I was elated to find the "classic men" in a shop in Kerala last month. So, when I returned to Lucknow, I enquired and it is available on order. The dealer did not appear keen to get a green and says black is available more easily. I think the suncross company of Ludhiana is making it available. Parts are coming from Srilanka etc. The days of CCIL Asansol are history in our times.

I think I will also look for a Town 26 SS model soon.

The Humber and Robinhood are nonetheless nowhere to be traced. Eternally gone :(

The last Humber I saw was in early 90s in my home town, but it was in good condition then.

Vip.

I found this Driving Licence for bicycles. Gondal State used to issue the Driving licence to bicycle owners back in the 1930s. This Driving Licence is in the Gujarati Language. I "tried " my best to translate it into English.

3. Bicycle rider must stop when police ask him /her to do so.
4. If a rented bicycle is used to commit a crime, the original owner is liable to give bicycle user's name and address.

Interestingly there are no brakes, the way to slow down would be by applying your foot on the front tyre.

Most of the saddles were made of leather as seen in this bicycle.

I don't know if this qualifies here, we still have this cycle. Many of us would remember this type of cycles which were popular in the 70-80's. Made by Jyothi cycles. A clone of BSA Champ. Don't know if this brand(Jyothi) still exists.
