Chater Lea pedals - Pre-war
Shown here are a rare survivors, a pair of pre-war Chater Lea pedals in remarkably original condition.The famous part stainless steel CL pedal with the "tommy-bar" fitting was introduced in 1939 so it is surmised that this is the model directly beforehand.
They are of top quality and surfaced with a remarkable find of cycles in Solihull near Birmingham in about 1996.
All had been greased and put away many years earlier and only came to sight on the death of the owners widow.
