I have a Geoffrey Butler frame and fork. I have found thru Bikeforums and the person I purchased it from that it is a Butler but in one conversation I have been told that it was built by Charles Roberts, But I have not received an answer from the guy who told me this as to his definitive reason.

Here are a few pictures

Wow lots of views but no information. Does anybody here know anything about the Roberts as builders or Geoffrey Butlers?

Roadking on here usually has informed opinions about Croydon framebuilders.

Try sending him a message he may be able to help.

Unfortunately he won’t be able to PM till he’s placed 30 posts.... (new rules attempting to thwart spammers)

Now I have, Roadking sounds like the pompous old fart that was pulling the same "I know some information but I am going to be obtuse about giving it to you" on BikeForums.

I wish he would just help out instead of not providing the information. Some people can be founts of knowledge and some founts of BS.

I was more referring to the comment that GB didn't make their own frames, nor did Roberts.

I knew the GB did not make any frames and sourced them from many different builders. But Roadking illuded to GB frames having been built by Roberts,.
