Default RAF WW2 Station SUNBEAM Bicycle !!!!

I went to work on this today !!!! Great item we obtained last week.

It's a damn good original RAF WW2 Station SUNBEAM Bicycle ..Early Bicycle with Sunbeam Badge and RAF Finish inc Roundel and markings to the side.Some surface rust coming through the paintwork in places but only light.I dont know a lot about Vintage Bicycles but this has an enclosed Oil bath Chain mechanisim and is a 1939 model....It is an Ex Museum item and display piece and would be great for riding around the Shows or for a RAF WW2 reenactor.Genuine Saddle and a quality Bicycle and probably an Officers.....Rear tyre has a puncture otherwise its sound. Scarce item this !
