Thanet

A unique and innovative bicycle maker who produced bicycles from 1945 through 1958 in Bristol, England.


The brainchild of Les Cassel, two predominant models were produced: the "Silverthan" a conventional design featuring Thanet's groundbreaking silver brazing methods and the "Silverlight" an unorthodox design featuring smaller than normal tubes (1" down & seat tube, 7/8" top tubes and extremely small diameter chain stays.)


The seat and down tubes travel below and cradle the bottom bracket shell.
