1903 Humber Standard Special No. 14 Gent’s Roadster

with FREE-WHEEL and BAND BRAKE

 

This Humber is a ‘Standard’ model, which means it was manufactured in Humber’s Coventry factory rather than the Beeston factory in Nottinghamshire. With a frame number of 127900 the marque specialist has confirmed it was built in 1903. Though there’s no absolute record of Standard machines, he knows of a machine with a frame number of 139257 with shop ledgers that record it being sold on 27th January 1904.
