I was watching this Jagrose named bike on the bay because of the paint job. Never expected it to be such a high price (£500+). Please comment on the what, who, when of the Jag builder & brand. I'm very eyes & ears to know a lot more about this bike :-)

(close inspection shows the quality of the frame build, fork rake, paint job, geometry etc. Quite stunning.) Thanks in advance, yours Laz.

Hi, the 'brand' is J A Grose ( James Grouse ), a cycling/outdoor type store based in Euston Road London, with a few other shops around London, they did a lot of mail order. The bike looks original which adds pounds to it, the equipment looks first class for late 40's / early fifties and the frame looks a good un', but can't see too much detail. Probably made by a very good third party frame builder at the time - you can take your choice in London at that time ( what a choice ! ). This all adds up to a fair price for a rare piece of history, and does the buyer know the builder, probably. Hope this helps a bit. Terry

Thank You Tel :-) Much appreciated my friend. Information like what lives in your's and other heads in here can't be bought, it's invaluable. All my best to you, yours Laz.
