Percy Stallard's shop was well known for the quality of its frames and he's generally accepted as the founder of modern day road racing in the UK, what you have here is part of British cycling heritage and more on his involvement can be found on:
also if you can get hold of a copy of the DVD "Up The League" there's more on his contribution....
Thanks Excel. I'm very fortunate to have custody of this frame and its connections. Also he enjoyed hillwalking here in Snowdonia after his retirement it seems. The condition of this frame seems rather amazing given its age
Thanks for sharing. I did once visit Percy's shop on Broad Street* in Wolverhampton city centre about 25 or so years ago, probably not that long before it closed actually, but back then I didn't really appreciate the importance in cycling terms of the old bloke that served Dad!
*Sadly, as with seemingly most of the shops on Broad Street these days, I suspect it's now either some sort of takeaway or a shop of the "adult" variety (wink wink, nudge nudge).
