I had a Paul Milnes as well:http://www.flickr.com/photos/62249235@N ... 228405708/
As far as I know he was a pretty good road racer in the 70s/80s, when he retired he opened his shop in Bradford which is still there. I think he bought his frames in which may explain the lack of frame numbering. All his bikes seem to be above average quality
All true but I think the shop has now closed and he is concentrating on his e-bay selling only. Frames were obtained form various sources, probably depending on the relative value. I have a CX frame which was one of his 'standard' offerings but has lovely Zeus 2000 frame parts.
Today is the yesterday of tomorrow.
