Looks like Midlife cracked the case.. Same (complete) headbadge can be seen in his first link.
I reckon late 60s or early 70s, with that Reynolds decal. Zeus on a British bike always makes you think of Ron Kitching... when did he start importing these dropouts?

hmm this is a very much nice info dude..thanks for sharing such a really very much nice info. 8)

Same name?

Been looking at these again (Gumtree has gone though). The Brick Lane one is a really nice modern'ish tourer but the Vintage Bike cave one is a bit of an enigma. I have a feeling that this might not be a Tierney build but he may have done the modification and had it resprayed. Looking at the way the lugs have been nicely filed I wonder if it could actually be a James Fothergill? If so then it's a bargain!

No luck with the first 2 mates I tried, they've been Liverpool cyclists since the early 50's and they didn't remember anything! L17 is the Aigburth area in the South of Liverpool. I've got a couple of more people to try now though. I'm intrigued!

An update on the Tierney, I acquired the frame from John and have started a restoration project.
Now in a nice bright colour scheme as you can see below.
I got in touch with Nick at H Lloyd regarding Tierney decals and he managed to source some NOS for me, nice man.
