Posing with a thirties Red Panther. The Red Panther was famous as the value bike of the depression years and sold exclusively through Pride and Clarke of London. Panther kept the price of the Red model down by using apprentices and mill hands as cheap labour and sourced cheaper quality bought in parts than for other models. Despite the low cost the bikes were of decent design and gave many folks good service. Check closely and this one has got the optional Pride and Clarke speedo with huge five inch face.
