1954 Cyclemaster on 1949 Hercules ‘Popular’ Ladies Cycle

h0.jpg

This Cyclemaster is in excellent condition and runs well.

h01.jpg

It has lots of great accessories.

h10.jpg

There’s a basket, Smiths speedo, lights, number plates front and rear, Brooks saddle, and tool pouch behind the saddle.

h14.jpg

It’s a very good-looking set-up.

h02.jpg

Hercules bicycles are well-built. This is a sturdy cycle that’s ideal for ‘cyclemotorization.’

h03.jpg

It is not registered. But it has been through the workshop and is ready for MOT.

Cyclemaster Ltd was owned by EMI, and they published quarterly magazines devoted to the Cyclemaster.

h05.jpg

Every issue of the ‘Magic Wheel’ is reproduced in full on the Cyclemaster Museum website; they provide a fascinating insight into motoring in the 1950s.

Cyclemasters are not rare. There’s often one for sale on ebay, and they’re not too expensive. However ….they are invariably non-runners in need of work and missing parts.

h07.jpg

It’s rare to find a good one like this that is restored mechanically, and in a bicycle that’s in such excellent unrestored original cosmetic condition.

h08.jpg

Frame number is 5761LO; engine number is A51799.

h09.jpg

We no longer like over-restored vintage vehicles; they are too common.

h11.jpg

A mechanically good machine with tidy unrestored cosmetics is the ideal for the modern vintage enthusiast.
