Original Factory & Sales Receipts

 

 

As a collector, I migrated to vintage bicycles from vintage cars and motorcycles: my interest in social history inspired me to go further back in time, beyond the era of affordable vintage motorised vehicles. I’ve derived the utmost pleasure learning about these earlier times, but one regret has always been that bicycles do not have a logbook to record their initial ownership.

This machine is the exception. It is accompanied by its original shop sales receipt, as well as the factory receipt from John Marston Ltd, informing a supply date of 16th April 1935.

The bicycle itself is in good all-round condition. Two items are not original to the bike: the saddle and pedals. The only thing I’ve done since buying it is to fit new tyres and tubes.
