New to the forum. Just getting back into riding again. This has been in the family since the mid/late 60's, but wasn't new then. We got it for a bottle of Talisker!
I could do with some help identifying the model, and probably finding some wheels/rims, tyres, a saddle, and a better crankset, the rest is do-able......Oh, and does anyone know if there are stickers available, or anyone who might make them. Does CB still exist....
Update at 24/11/11...Definately a Cordon Bleu, as it has the little square locating lug for aftermarket changers. The previous owner told me yesterday that he bought it second hand about 1970, and thought it was "about 8 years old" when he got it. It was Ruby and Cream. This seems to confirm what i though about it, i.e circa 1962
Frame: Claud Butler "Cordon Bleu"
Fork: Matching CB forks
Brake Levers/Brifters: Weinmann
Brake Calipers: Weinmann 730 QR
Front Derailleur: N/A
Rear Derailleur: Campagnola Gran Sport
Bottom Bracket: LBS
Hubs: Normandy wide flange ( both stamped '79)
Hub Skewers: Front "Miche", rear track nuts.

Cheers for any help you can give,
