Hi folks,

I've got hold of a bike which I was told is a Graham Weigh which has numerous markings on the bottom bracket. Does anyone have any info on the serial numbers used by Graham Weigh (or Paul Donohue) as to what they mean in terms of build date etc? or any history on the frames? It has really nice lugs and a braze on for a race number behind the headtube.

I'll post some photos soon

beenatitforyears, a member on here, seems to be very knowledgeable about PD frames, he may be able to help (or point you in the right direction)

Cheers Orbeas, I was under the impression that the current Graham Weigh company is just the name and have no records of the old frame building days?

Graham had frames built for him by several people I reckon. Terry Dolan was one in the early days. Graham is still involved with the current company along with Keith but not sure what records they might still have.
