Hello
This is my first time posting on this forum and what I have seen find it great. I have a query, about 15 years ago I bought a complete bike from a chap in Yorkshire. The frame was a bit tatty so I stripped it down and gave it to Langdale lightweights for a respray.

The frame has the name CHRIS PAULSON on the tubing which is 531 but the only mention I can find is on their shop website which just states they once made hand built frames I have emailed them twice but had no reply.
Does anyone know anything about Chris Paulson at all.
Thank you in anticipation

According to above thread he made them in-house himself but personally never heard the name in the 70's.

Lugs like they have been "individualised" so might have made his own frames...

Cheers for that Shaun.
My lug set is different and it has 3/4 chrome forks with Campag ends front and rear,these were originally full length but the chrome was poor at the top so it became 3/4 .The top tube also has concealed rear brake cable run ,the decals are the same as my original ones so at least I know he exsisted.
Once again thanks for the reply

In the early 80`s when BMX became popular Chris Paulson built very good quality fillet brazed 531 tubed BMX frames & forks. Used to advertise in the frame builder section of the weekly comic at that time Have no idea if he still trades
