Edward O’Brien Ltd was the company behind the Challenger Cycle Motor Company, makers of the Coventry Challenge bicycle. The firm claimed to be the world’s largest cycle dealer. Their 1909 advertising campaign was renowned for using the ‘Heaviest Man on Earth’ – a Mr. W. Ecclestone, who weighed 37 stone – to ride their bicycle as proof of their bicycles’ high quality construction.

 

The piece is really well built and has a great look to it.  There are some marks and wear to it which is in line with its age and use.
