Can someone give me some advice please?
My father had an original Claude Butler road bike dating back to the late 40s. It was originally built for Rory Obrien his then works manager, my father was the same height and weight and bought it off him in the late 40s I believe, he used to race his bike and also took it up the Pyrenees. It is in poor but original state and needs work but has all the original frame, seat gears etc. Hubby wants to skip it... I was wondering if it was worth keeping and if I posted pictures would it be worth renivating? Thank you for any advice/ whether it is worth anything etc. [/b]
I've no knowledge of the value of a Claud Butler - I'm sure there are plenty of people on Retrobike who could help you out - but you may find the item below (and associated website) of interest before your hubby goes running out to the skip.
Claud Butler - King of Lightweights
You may have to make several more posts before you can start to upload photos. Good luck.
