1926 Saxon Club

Front Pull-up Brake

New Eadie Coaster Brake

24″ Frame

28″ Wheels

Saxon was a lightweight pioneer, and the company started making bicycles in 1923. The ‘Club’ was their first model. It’s rare to find a 1926 example such as this. The more common 1930s models had small frames, whereas this early model is a 24″ frame size.

The wood lined fork seen here was introduced in 1926. It retains its original Saxon quick release wing nuts. An unusual feature is the coaster hub, which has Saxon wing nuts too (not really an ‘quick release’). As the machine has been fitted with 1930s metal mudguards – much more practical than celluloid – I assume a previous owner set it up with a period coaster brake too to provide a more efficient braking system.
