Just got this from Liverpool, there's not much online about Walvale,
I know they were based in the Aintree area (It's on the badge!).

The young couple I bought it from said it had been in the attic for 50 years, the rear derailleur is scribed 'patent 76' so maybe it was more like 40 years.

Nicely equipped for the time I'd say, and a curious orange colour whoch is growing on me.

I'm trying to upload photos but it keeps saying the file is too big.

Anyway, Campag brakes, Nuovo Record gears front and back plus levers Mavic rims at 27 1/4, and Campagnolo Record hubs.
Early Shimano 600 chainset.
Primo Extra Giro d' Italia handlebars.

Serial number is WA90.

Colour and decals look original and in very good order.

Any info.greatly appreciated.
