This is an innovative design for a 2-speed front wheel drive bicycle made by Acrow in the Sydney suburb of Guilford in 1987. It is a production prototype acquired direct from the manufacturer, Acrow Pty Ltd of 11 Ferndell Street, Guildford. The bicycle was designed for Acrow by Design Field of Paddington. Apparently the Acrow bicycle did not go into production in Australia.
The bicycle is of a fabricated pressed steel frame, painted red with front wheel drive but no chain. It has a two-speed gearbox built directly into the hub. The pedals are built into the front wheel spokes and are of black rubber with orange reflector strips. The front and back wheel brakes are operated by a single brake control on the right-hand handle. It features a T-shaped handle bar with black and red rubber grips on the handles. The bicycle features a broad triangular angled seat upholstered in ridged black vinyl. The seat is suitable for riders from 4 ft 9 inches to over 6 feet. Other features include a steel rectangular bicycle rack over the back wheel, white plastic mudguard over the top of the back wheel, a reflector light under the seat, and a bike rest on the left hand side. It has two transfers with 'Acrow' on each side of the hub.
