Darren has provided lots of interesting information.

It's likely a 1952/53 frame but the frame number indicates it's a Paris but not built by Harry Rensch or Tom Board.

Discussion with Graham at Vintage Bike Cave suggest it isn't terribly valuable but that was purely an interest as it isn't for sale.

It is bronze welded and probably some type of Reynolds tubing.

Darren said there is a register of frame numbers. Does anyone know who holds this and do they add frames to the register as they are discovered.

It could be a Lightweight or Tour De France model. Does anyone have any photo's of the colour schemes and decals on these models?

Alvin Smith, the author of the "Rensch and Paris Cycles", the book mentioned earlier, would be a useful contact.
The book is encyclopedic in detail, and an extraordinary contribution on that Marque.

Alvin is the V-CC Marque Enthusiast for Paris Cycles, and access is for V-CC members.
You are encouraged to join, and for that you also get access to all the past copies of "The Boneshaker" and "News and Views" which are not accessible to non-members on the comprehensive library site.
I have made a note of the dates of some of the published articles on Paris Rench at http://www.bicycles.net.au/forums/viewt ... 7#p1275274

Thanks for the replies.

Another suggestion is that it could be a Professional.

The forks look different to Tour de France but do have matching frame number.
