-When I said it's fully assembled, I meant the bike, not the leg!

At last! I have some details!
I posted an enquiry to the nice people at the National Cycle Collection;- http://www.cyclemuseum.org.uk/
Within a few days of my enquiry, Scotford Lawrence of NCC wrote back with a scanned image from Cycling Magazine of 15th August 1962.
It's a road test by 'Nimrod' of a Toledo road bike.
Toledo cycles were made by Newington Engineering Co. Ltd. of 29 Angel Factory Colony, Edmonton. The article has a details of the design of the bike, priced at £26 19s 6d! and an account of a test ride around the Chilterns.
I've uploaded the article along with pictures of the frame as it was when I bought it and with all the paint stripped off, ready for a fresh coat. Pictures of the bike in its' restored form are to follow:-

I'd like to get hold of an original copy of the magazine. Are there any collectors or dealers out there who might have a copy?

Best to keep your eye on Ebay for the right copy of Cycling magazine, they turn up quite often. I have a stack of them but they run until the late 50s. I've always wondered who Nimrod was?
