I've just joined this forum having recently acquired a Poyner Road bike frame. It is numbered L61 on the underside of the bottom bracket. I was a keen cyclist as a teenager in the 1980's but never had anything really special - only my own hand built bike for which I made the frame in my Fathers model engineering workshop - Happy Days !
I'm trying to date this Poyner. I guess its from the mid 1970's but really not sure what to look for. Any info would be appreciated. I've seen a little here posted about Poyner, but surely there is someone out there that knows more ? Fingers crossed - because Im planning on fully restoring it to period and original spec. as far as is possible. Here are some photos.

Short campag portacatena (spelling) places it at the end of the 70's beginning of the 80's (as does top tube guides)
