BSA Parabike canvas kit bag?

Recommended Posts

After spotting a BSA Folding Bicycle that had a canvas bag mounted inside the frame, I thought I'd start looking for one. Solomon Adler list them at £55 + postage but I've emailed them and had no reply. Battledress and Bayonet list the same thing from Solomon Adler at £95 + postage! Can anyone steer me in the right direction for such a bag?

The other accessory is the front carrier to carry a Bergen. Ron

Thanks Ron, I've sent Frank an email.

There was a young lad in the Bayeux Parade on a Parabike with a frame-mounted bag and I've never seen a folding bicycle being peddled so quickly up a hill. He stormed past all the motorcycles!

Yes he had proper pedals fitted to it. Did you come to Tilly with us? (about 10 miles from Bayeux) He decided to come as well. Andy actually towed him gently most of the way. His wheel bearings must have been quite warm! He was only about 12 years old and when we enquired about his family. He said "it's ok, I've text my Dad to tell him I'm being looked after by a group of bikers". Very keen young lad in full uniform....Love it!

I had to catch my ferry after Bayeux so the trip to Tilly was missed this time. The young lad certainly looked the part in his Para uniform and top marks for the trip to Tilly! I was impressed by his peddling through the hilly part of Bayeux and had no idea he was warming up for another 20 mile round trip.

I put a everest carrier on my bike once with a full small pack on it.

I found it made the bike feel/steer a bit different, a tad to much weight on the front wheel.

 

Wouldn't want to ride it with a heavier weight on the front.
