That frame finish with the little flicks of paint on the top of the fork crown rings a bell.............for the life of me I can't remember.

My Gillott has them. I don't think they were unique to any one maker.

OK, wrong again, but the rear brake bridge was not a small builder's work.
I like the term "Generic", but who was eric?

I still think it might have a 26 TPI bottom bracket

These Dia Compes are lovely and new: http://www.sjscycles.co.uk/dia-compe-gr ... rc=froogle

These should be very cheap and will clean up fine: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Vintage-Weinm ... 2ec06996c0

Or classic Mafacs: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Vintage-MAFAC ... 4aba5901d3

I may even have some myself I'll check tomorrow but got a feeling they've all gone now....

Lugs was the norm for steel bikes for many, many years if not for the entire duration of the steel era. Rarer to have lugless.

Underneath it all it looks like a Carlton to me........not sure why, just how it looks.

Late 70's pro-am / corsair type ?
