1940s Phillips Mark V* Military Roadster

1940s Phillips Mark V* Military Roadster

(Now sold)

********************

In World War II, the Japanese were able to take over the Malaysian Peninsula in 70 days largely because of the speed of its cycle-mounted troops (above). I added a brief early history of bicycles in action in the page on my 1919 BSA Military Roadster.

BSA, Mercury, Raleigh and Phillips supplied the British military with bicycles.

********************

You can compare this Phillips Mark V* (the asterisk denotes conventional brakes) with my BSA Mark V coaster brake model on the previous page.
