141812 – 1923 Royal Sunbeam

1923 Royal Sunbeam

My first Sunbeam, and still my favourite bicycle, seen here as I bought it, with Brooks B66 saddle – sadly, this had already been repaired, and eventually gave out. The frame size is 26″ – pretty well the comfortable limit for me (I am 5′ 11″) – and I think its proportions very pleasing – particularly the length and rake of the head tube and the curve of the front forks. This picture is, by a very long way, the most frequently viewed on my Flickr site.
