Bitd a lot of woodrup frames were made to order so didn't have a model name :)

looking forward to the pics as one of my favourite makes, I raced a woodrup as a schoolboy and also raced a Jackson built by kevin sayles who now builds for woodrp

All genuine Woodrup's are classy frames, crisp, clean and elegant. BITD used a lot of fully sloping cinelli crowns and often chrome. Woodrup supplied frames to Pro riders to put their own name on too :)

The big problem was that Woodrup decals were quite easy to get hold of BITD and perhaps later. Woodrup decals do crop up on non-Woodrup frames........

Any pics?
