Kept back for me by 'the management' I have this to show you.

Clearly restored by somebody else, the only original surviving part is the Cyclo downtube shifter.

Anyway, heres some big pics

Hi, lovely frame, I've always fancied a mid fifties Coventry Eagle, I believe the model is an Exemplar, so it should have straight 531 tubing. Those stays really make a change from the norm. Nice, look after it. Terry

Really? Cool - I feel some lug lining coming on.

SA 3 speed? 5 spd? Might make it into a posh commuter for the winter. All those bolt on bits make it less susceptible to the yoof.

Hi I came across your old post whilst looking for info on a frameset I was given by an elderly neighbour. Not sure if you still have your Exemplar but this is what the original paint job on mine looked like. I think this one dates from 1952 or 53 and it is the Exemplar De Luxe Model. It seems to be plain gauge 531 lovely lugs and wraparound seat stay. It has NERVEX stamped on the BB Shell and simplex dropouts. I would love to have it re painted to the original design but fear it would mean selling the house to pay for it as the paint job was very detailed. Here are some pics of the frame and an old poster I found
