The cycle which Maurice Gaeten Selbach, cycle manufacturer, and well-known racing cyclist, was riding down Brixton Hill when he was killed, was taken into the Camberwell Coroner's Court today. The cycle, was stated, had one inch tyres Instead of the usual one and half inch. Evidence was given that the cycle caught in the tramlines, and Selbach was flung under a lorry.
