Swedish Army M/42 Military Bicycle – Great Original Condition

Here we have a nice Swedish Army m/42.  The m/42 model was built in the 1940’s and 50’s.  I am guessing this is a mid to late 1950’s model but if anyone can pin the date down from the frame number please let me know.

It is in great original condition, rides well and the back pedal brake works fine.  The seat is the correct one and super comfy as well.  As you can see it has some light surface rust here and there and some evidence of overpainting in a similar green.  All lighting works though the rear light has been cracked and repaired.  Tool box is unfortunately empty.  All in all a great bike and super comfy riding position.

This has taken me to the pub on many occasions and if there ever was a nuclear war, then the cockroaches would be riding these as they would be the only two things to survive – it really is a bomb proof bike.

Price: £250

Size is 23 inches centre to top seat tube and 24 1/4 centre to centre top tube.
