A 1951 New Hudson Silver Arrow. A base model using Reynolds 531 straight gauge frame tubes, from just after BSA took over the company, with frame geometry and lugs held over from prewar BSA road models.
Thank you @daam ! I appreciate it. It's a smooth riding bicycle, but I still need something more gear towards touring to truly replace the Centurion. Perhaps sooner than later... Cheers!
Hello Daam. No, I wasn't hurt beyond some scratches. I'd had worse from falling over when I was first learning the art of clipless pedals! But the frame and rims were toasted. I actually just began taking it apart recently, and still have the components. Frame hunting will begin soon... Thanks!
I was extremely happy to find this beautiful original Centurion Pro Tour (c. 1979) on Ebay a couple of years ago. Alas, all too soon the frame was ruined by a hit-and-run driver who rolled through a country stop sign and caused me to crash into the side of his truck! What a pity...
