Little known outside of it's home country of England, James or "The Famous James" as
the decals and headbadge proclaim, is a highly regarded marque that began producing
ordinaries in 1885 and continued on to make a full line of bicycles and motorcycles,
including motorcycles used in motor paced track events. This bicycle was James' top
racing model and has the distinctive Lauterwasser handlebars, named after the well
known bicycle racer of the '20s, Jack Lauterwasser, and the equally distinctive Resilion
cantilever brakes. Notice the 12" long tension spring for the Cyclo derailleur. This bike
retains its original finish and components.
