Hallo, pardon me i write from germany and i know that my english is very bad but i need some Informations about a frame i get last week. Under the BB are two numbers: 1297 than a LE and near to the numbers of the Nervex Lugs is the number 14573. It seams to be a Frame from 1950-1955 because of the gear shifters from Simplex. I think that it is a frame from Les Ephgrave but the lugs are different to the lugs he used to build, not that complicated. The weight of the frame is very low. It is 1890 gram and the fork 700g

I hope that anyone can help my, i can`t find any informations in german forums for classic lightweights.
Thanks a lot

.....although simpler in design it looks very similar to an early 1950's Ephgrave
