I am in the process of getting in touch with my old club, the De Laune when I ran across your inquiry into Pat Skeats bikes...I had one. I had Mr. Skeats build me a frame possibly around 1951 or so, his shop was on a back street between Brixton and Clapham. He was noted for his very fine lug work - filing the points down almost to the tube, my lugs were not as ornate as the pictures shown.
I emigrated to the USA in the early sixties and told my parents to sell the bike ...what would I give to have that bike today.
The only pictures that I have of the bike is of me racing in time trials and at Brands Hatch etc.
Hi and welcome!
We love photos especially old racing ones. An old friend of mine used to race at Brands Hatch in the 50's. He was a member of the Mercury CC so probably from your old area?
Today is the yesterday of tomorrow.
