    Hi
    Here is my 1928 Primus Sport stove with a bicycle clamp attached.
    I noticed the lipstick vapouriser base is different to my other 96’s.
    The pump can be locked in place on which looks like a retro fitted thread on the pump cap and knob.
    The case has Primus 96 Sport on the lid of the case which my later model does not.
    The tray has an extra set of cut outs in the top left hand corner but the burner bell does not fit these.

    Hi Andrew. wonderful stove and pictures.
    More interesting as it has the retro-fitted bicycle clamp.
    I don’t understand your comment about the pump cap being able to be locked in place, since it looks like the correct pump cap for the period of your stove:

    Compare it with the sister stove above.

    Here is a link to Bryan Miller’s study of the development of the Primus No.96:

    @Andrew
    @kerophile
    The extra threads to the right on the pump cap seems to be able to lock on to something extra in the pump handle (or vice versa), interesting, would be interesting to know more about, is this an extra bicycle function?

    All the best, e

    Hi @tofta and @Andrew I now see what you mean and can see the threaded cap and threaded pump knob/cap. I have never seen these items before.

    Nice stove. Regarding the pump cap locking I would surmise it was a way to keep it from working out due to jostling while riding.

    I don’t get the idea of a bicycle clamp when there are so many other loose parts which need to be carried.
    Why the need for a clamp when it can be carried in the tin in a backpack.

    Hi @Andrew I have always assumed that the primary purpose was to reduce the weight of the items to be carried in panniers or rucksack.

    You left the metal case at home, clamped the fuelled tank to the hadlebars, or cycle frame, and carried the smaller stove items in a tool pouch or similar.

    The other advantage of the cycle clamp is that any fuel leakage does not taint the contents of bags. The reserve caps of standard small Primus stoves are very prone to leakage since they depend on the seal that can be achieved between the brass plug and a lead washer...
