One of the Historical guys had a look at it and the Bike it is a Marlyn Mixte from the 1960s, assembled in Melbourne on an English Phillips (Raleigh) Frame.
On his advice I have left the paint original.
The Wheels were rebuilt on Shimano Hubs:
3 speed coaster rear
Stainless Steel Spokes
The original rims were sandblasted and powder coated silver.
Tyres are new Duro medium pressure 26x1 3/8.
Headset and bottom bracket were also serviced,
All the old chrome was sandblasted and powder coated silver.
New inner and outer shifter cable.
Costs to date, $157, so I will try for $200 in the Sunday Times.
Hi, I have a similar question. A friend has given me what he claims is a Marlyn to sell for him on ebay. It has good spec but no way of identifying it. i,e. nothing on the frame. You show me your (pics) and i'll show you mine?
