1936 Armstrong Moth Tandem bicycle for sale
Built in 1936 at the Sherbourne Street factory in Birmingham. Long before car ownership was common, this was the touring and holiday transport of choice for families and even had the option of a sidecar for 2 children (sadly not for sale here). To say it qualifies for L’Eroica events would be an understatement.
Frame Number 39281G.
