My "N" - 1924 Primus 96, my darkest patina stove. With bike attachment.
Very cool. Did you add the bike attachment?
Looks like it has never been polished...
At least use the ” Rag for Wiping”
Nothing to wipe. My old 45 had some fuel spillage that I cleaned up to reveal its patina better.
Bike attachment was on it.
Duane the patina on your 1924 beats the patina on my 1927. It's interesting that the clip on your stove is mounted opposite to the one on my stove and the other example below that. I suppose as an after market piece it could be mounted either way.
I like a good patina! It shows its use.
I just posted this on another thread
Thanks Ben and Ivan. Guess my mt bike is too new, the clamp needs a shim to work. Not sure how they are used. For a picnic tea or soup when stopped, then removed before and after use? Seems it would get rattled pretty good on the move.
I have the model that is mounted to the burner and fount also.
Geez...my biker PRIMUS is just a youngster compared to yours. Marked AP (1951). Probably still the best patina on a brassie that I own. Why is it the worst looking stoves always seem to burn the best??
@hikerduane the clamp on my stove came with thick pieces of leather glued to the inside of each half of the clamp. I suppose it acts as a shim and also protects the paint from scratches. Check out this post for some more information on bicycle clamps. There is a photo of the other type you're talking about.
Alexxxxxxxx has the other type that I have also.
How do you keep the kettle on the stove when cornering???
Agreed. I like patina.
Yea, when I first bought the stove I hooked it to the handlebar not knowing any better. After I posted the photo helpful CCS members quickly wised me up. I wish I knew where I put that stove. It's around here somewhere.
After seeing some of your stoves with deep patina, I guess my worst one, ain't that bad, afterall! Here's the old 00 I found in a soiled bag, a long time ago.
And, I just remembered an old 1930 Primus #100, found in Milwaukee, in 2013.
This one needs some help, but I'm not going to do more than wipe away the dust and grime. The patina will stay. Take care, and God Bless!
That 100 looks a little worse than my 100. Hate to ask what the bag was soiled with.
My No 1 has a sweet patina.

If you wipe your stoves down, keep the grit off, the patina develops really nice
