Nicely filed lugs on that Woodrup :D And you can still see them unlike the occasional Aende LOL


It's very similar in detail to the one I had built in 72/73 - but considerably smaller. I know where that one is - hanging in a garage unused for years at the same place that I re-acquired my dark green Dave Russell. I offered to buy it back as well as the DR but for some reason he wanted to hang on to it. Now this has jogged my memory I might have another go at getting it.

I seem to remember that Maurice called the seat stay attachment design by a 'special' name. It could have been 'Hoban' after Barry (who rode Woodrups branded as 'Mercier' on the continent) and it was one of their signature features.
