The Trusty Pavemaster

I’ve been digging through the lock-up, trying to sort out the collection of junk bikes.  Most of them will be stripped for spares and the frames scrapped.

However, I did find some interesting bikes that I am now auctioning on eBay.

I’ve been digging through the lock-up, trying to sort out the collection of junk bikes. Most of them will be stripped for spares and the frames scrapped.

However, I did find some interesting bikes that I am now auctioning on eBay.

The most interesting of these is a Trusty Pavemaster children’s bicycle from 1959.

It will need new tyres and some adjustment to make it rideable, but it’s not far off.  It could also make a very interesting restoration project.

  1. Hi,
    Im almost 50 now, and the pavemaster is the bike i learned to ride on in the mid 60’s. I am amazed i found even a picrure of one. I have vivid memories of the first time i was let loose without the stabilisers, and I subsequently loved that bike!
    I wonder if you still have one?

    Regards

  2. I guess they are worth whatever somebody is willing to pay. This one sold on eBay for £50

  3. i have a old Pavemaster Just about like this one but the one i have has
    a bigger bar in the middle looks like a folding bike but it,s not
    can you help me can,t find any pics of the bike its very old tires

  4. Hi Larry, sounds like an early Spacemaster separable. Look for a campagnolo quick release near the steering.
    Let me know if it is.

  5. I had a Pavemaster same as yours in the early very early 60’s learned to ride without stablelizers on it, all was going great till I collided with my mates dads new Vauxhall Cresta taking a corner and smashed his headlamp and my dad had to pay for it. He always used to remind me of it and it brought a smile to my face when I went to his funeral a couple of years ago, to be honest I never really liked the bike it looked a bit girlish, I want a Raleigh the small one with the balloon tyres, looking at it now its not to bad.

  6. I too have a Trusty Pavemaster and came across this site whilst trying to price it to put it on e bay following my Dad’s house clearance. My father bought it for me back in the late 1960’s as the thicker tyres would do less damage to his lawn when ridden round the garden.
