Believed originally to have been purchased in 1950.
This BSA Safety Shopping Model R9 bike is in excellent original and unrestored unrestored well-maintained condition and has a BSA lettered chainset and the original leather saddle. Olive Green paintwork.
Some to be expected signs of wear as the bike is over 70 years old, but this has left the bike with a beautiful genuine patina. This bike is single speed with 24 inch x 1 3/8 inch wheels and a 21 inch frame.
Newish tyres and tubes and the rod brakes are in good order so the bike is road ready.
“BSA’s ‘Safety Shopping Model R9 was ‘the only bicycle specially designed with the woman shopper in mind. Low wide-loop frame and 24″ wheels make mounting and dismounting easy, and allow comfortable foot-on-ground position in traffic”.
