Where do all these lovely vintage bikes come from? and why does nobody ever clear out their garages near me :cry:

When i get an hour to spare i will lift it down and take some more pictures.
I find all my old bikes by word of mouth.i have only ever bought 3 frames of the bay.2 at what i consider very good prices and 1 which i think i paid a little bit over the odds for.[/quote]

Now you're just rubbing salt into the wounds :) that Sun is just fabulous. If you ever come across a 50's club riders bike give me a shout! On the look out for a new project. And looking forward to many more pics.

The Carlton International/Flyer on page 3 is very nice.1950's i would think it was built to order.So it's a one off.Rare machine.I only seen one other International with track ends.
Cost almost as much as a Hetchins.

^ there's a chap on here, J-Rok?, with a similar bike. LOVELY lugs! He'll be along soon, beatiful lugs. Did I say incredible lug work, love it! :)

Great paint!

Edit: Lager induced confusion caused me not to realise they're the same person with the same bike, apolgies :D Still think it's got great lugs!
