1940s Phillips Mk.V* Military Roadster

24″ frame
26″ wheels
26 x 1 1/2 tyres
ORIGINAL UNRESTORED
DUNLOP SADDLE
READY TO RIDE
Phillips Cycle Co Ltd was one of the cycle manufacturers that made bicycles to the government military pattern MkV specification. You can read about it on the military bicycle website http://BSAbikes.co.uk
The MkV* designation means that the bicycle had conventional roller lever brakes, whereas the MkV had a roller lever front and coaster (back-pedal) rear brake.
I bought this bicycle from a museum four years ago.
The paintwork is weathered original. The headbadge and rear mudguard badge are intact. It’s fitted with heavy duty pedals.
I recently had it serviced and new tyres and inner tubes have been fitted.
It’s ready to display and ride.

The photo below shows it when I first bought it, with its museum sign fitted.
