Hi all,anyone out there with much more knowledge of the cycle trade from the '60s,assist me with the builder of Stan's frames. The shop was S.E London on Anerley Hill SE 19 and vary close to the Holdsworth factory. I've purchased nn old frame which appears to be from early to mid sixties. I believe the shop closed late 60's or early 70's with Stan 'retiring' to Cornwall. Thanks for looking.
I knew this area well throughout the 1970s, the Holdsworth factory was in Penge, actually SE20. The only shop I recall on Anerley Hill (SE19) was Ken Birds'.
Not heard of Stan Saunders.
