Vintage Viking Severn Valley Bicycle 1960 in Original Condition, Untouched Barn Find

 

Pre-Owned Vintage Viking Severn Valley Bicycle 1960 in Original Condition, Untouched Barn Find …A rare barn find in original condition and what looks to be original factory specifications.

Has been dry stored for many years and was owed by Bill Hollingsworth who owed the bicycle shop “meadows of Cheadle” South Manchester.

This is an untouched barn find, still with the storage dust, I have “test” cleaned two areas (top tube and rims) and underneath its wonderful. In my opinion it can be preserved with a deep clean and service or left as a rare example of a true “Barn Find” of over 60 Years ….I have checked the obvious things, no dents in frame, seat post and stem free etc, like I said the tyres are perished , but original.
