Hi

I picked up an old bike last year which Ive just about finished restoring. When it arrived it was a tired, rusty audax style machine. It has a 531 one frame, Simplex and GB parts etc After a rebuild and respray by Argos its now a lovely classic bike. The only identifying thing on the bike is the decals which say " Settle Cycles" - does anyone know anything about Settle cycles - did they produce their own bikes or was it a generic frame with their name on it ??

AFAIK they went bust a few years ago - I used to use them for mail order as they did stuff others didn't carry. Like most 'shop' frames expects it's a generic frame with their stickers.
