Tried to see if there was any chance of the DS builder still being around. Sadly I was informed by a good friend of his that he now lives in a home and contact is not possible.

From the frame number you posted I would hazard a guess that it was built in 1984? If so it would have been quite 'advanced' at the time.

Thanks for your update - out of interest who was the DS main builder?

Thanks

J

I mentioned it in a previous post. His name is Geoff Davis and he was a one man operation. Probably working in his shed!

Good grief, not on this thread as well! The Mods need to take action.

Hi all,

Update on the frame.

Thanks for all your thoughts up until now. I have been in contact with the MKM info point and have confirmation the bike was built by Steve Ellsworth after his MKM days, built on 5th. February 1984 and was custom built for trade (Delta Sportive).

The bike is now closer to being built up so will add pics when she is back on the road.

Thanks

J

If Steve built it it'll be a good 'un! He built for himself and the trade late 80's. I had a Lo-Pro of his through Mel Bentley and went to his Thorpe Arch workshop to sort out the spec.
