Victoria Bicycle Model Number V 62 N Circa
Made In Nurnberg Germany By Victoria Werke A.G.
This is an amazing find!
While clearing out an estate in Germany, that we purchased in
we happened to check a rooftop storage room.
The locked door did not look like it had been opened in ages,
and when we peered inside we found a strange shape in
a waxed paper wrap.
What a surprise to find this, nearly mint condition Victoria
We have not seen another one from this era - that was actually
in such fantastic condition!
Please click through the images above.
We believe that you will agree that this bike is
a truly amazing find!
Some of the features of note are:
When actuated the front brake pad plunges straight down to contact
of the rubber tire; original bike bell by Victoria works very
well; there is a nice spring loaded package carrier at the rear;
note the very stylish VW sprocket design; plenty of spring in
the seat made by Wittkop of Germany; includes original Carideng
tires (700x45c / 28") with very little or no wear; has a Gloria
lock with removable key; and especially note the removable blue
"skirt protector" around the rear wheel; as well as all of the
ornate badges and emblems!
Victoria bicycle production began in 1886
and by 1902 also
added motorized bikes to their product line.
(This was at a time when Nurnberg had 130 bicycle/motorcycle
The Victoria Werke company thrived until disrupted by the second
and ceased production in 1958.
Look at the advertising post card, above
and to the left. I don't think that leggy gal needed the skirt
protector on her Victoria!
