Vintage Rare James Archer "2 Speed Bracket Gear" Rod Brake Bike - 1906

This is a very rare James Archer 2 speed bike, this bike is in unrestored condition, The gears and brakes do work but the tyres are perished. This would be an ideal restoration project or may catch the eye of a keen collector either way this bike is a real gem.

The bike all seem original and complete, It is believed to be between 1906 and early 1940s. We have managed to find a website related to the bike which shows a 1906 model but have been told that these were made upto the second world war so please view or ask any questions you may have to satisfy yourself of the age. Website as follows.


The only other bike the same for sale is the frame ONLY for £200



  • 26 x 1 1/2 Wheels
  • 2 Speed James Archer Bottom Bracket Gears
  • Dynamo Lights
  • Rubber Block Pedals
  • "Wright" Sprung Saddle

Things To Consider:

As this bike very old, it is in need of cosmetic restoration. As above mentioned, the brakes and gears do work so some new tubes and tyres and bike would be rideable. If you have any questions please feel free to ring us on 01790 763713, or come in and have a look .
