1970’s Victoria

There were so many different bike companies during the 1970’s boom. Sooo many. I swear, each time I hear of another brand I think, “Well now I must have heard them all.” But, no.

The name Victoria sounded British to me, but the bikes were actually made in Germany. Shows what I know. This particular one was internally wired for from and rear lights and has a bracket for a generator on the fork. It also was plated for a little wheel lock.

The bike is so original it even sits on its original skinwall tires. They still hold air at “show” pressure and might very well stand up to full psi. If I get off my posterior I’ll take it out for a ride and find out.
