Humber is an English brand of bicycle. They were produced by the Humber Company better known for its cars. The company was founded in 1868. They also produced the Humber Motorcycles. The company was taken over by Rootes Group in 1931. One model is the Humber Sport 3-speed pictured on this page. It includes an unusual fork design, called "Duplex", in which each blade consist of two separate tubes, and a stylish chainring that includes the shape of five persons.
Humber also manufactured, at one time, an unusual type of bicycle frame known variously as "cross frames", "girder frames", or "truss frames". Their variant was also duplex, consisting in part of smaller side-by-side tubes similar to the duplex fork pictured below on this page.
