Phillip’s big sister Florence

October 17, 2010


Remember Phillip of the beautiful logo?

(I wish I  could show you but I tried to crop the photo and the media library spat the dummy, Anyway…)

It was a brand I had never seen before, or again,until now…

There she was in Gertrude Street, in full glory: Florence. Complete with loving details added by her rider. Starry grips (where oh wear did she find them?)

And, though it’s hard to see here because of the light, perfectly matching blue paint on the chain…

There is only one problem: Florence’s wheels are at least 26 inches – if not 27. Oh the quandry! Dilemma even! If I started blogging every gorgeous  big wheeled retro bike I saw in Fitzroy,  not only would I have to give up my day job to make the time to do it, but I would have drop ‘little’ from my blog name – ‘bikeblog’ just doesn’t have the same ring!

Oh bugger it. Florence is gorgeous and she needs sharing.

    tell me more about the phillips Florence bike. where made value etc love to hear from lady with blue Florence bike

    • Hi Loz, yes it’s a beautiful bike isn’t it. Sadly it was stolen some time after the post. You might notice it’s quite an old post, and I don’t think the owner is a follower of this blog, so your quest for more information on Phillips might have to go in another direction.

      Thanks for visiting little bike blog.
