No it's a single speed with straight handle bars but google images (trent sports) suggest it's not original . My dad was quite conservative and might have specified straight bars but doesn't explain lack of gears
Been on a few cycling forums and the single speed wheel is original . Also straight handle bars were an option when new so again they are probably the right ones . I found one new tyre at my local bike shop for 8 euros but finding a second will cost a lot more. Plan on keeping the patina ( cheap option) for now . The broken mudguards are coming off as is the eighties carrier and dynamo
It's 597 32 I am bidding on some on ebay and the local tyre shop has one in stock . Will fit black if possible but really whatever is cheap. The original plastic mudguards are beyond saving ,cracked broken and split. I have bought some period steel blue ones that i think will suit
