It is certainly not a pre 1950 bike. Due to the mounting of the bottlecage which only took place around somerwhere in the 70's withouth clamps, as well as the eyelets on the toprube for cabling, second half of the 70's. To my opinion a bike around at 1977....
Braze-ons for bottle cage bosses were available from some UK builders as early as 1964, indeeed my 1964 Allin Belgique
has them and I have the contemporary price list verifying this.
