Piccie of aforementioned traffic-dodger. It's a mysterious and powerful device. It's power is exceeded only by the fact that the brakes barely work.
What I know about it:
Purchased new from Berkshire Cycles in Winnersh, somewhere around 1982-1985.
Original spec that you can see in the photo includes frame, forks, handlebars, seatclamp, Dia-Compe MX two-fingers, gold anodised stem, Victor pedals (555s?), one-piece crank.
Other original kit not pictured: Shimano Tourney gold anodised calipers, black poly rims (Arayas I think, although was told they were Z-Rims, might still have them somewhere)
Most distinguising features about the frame: Gusset beneath downtube and headtube, recessed chain stays, tapered ends of seat and chainstays. Serial number stamped on rear dropout.
I've been through loads of pictures on VintageBMX, trying to find other frames that look similar. There seem to be very few with a gusset under the downtube, the only manufacturers that I noticed that did this is Redline and Procraft.
My guess is that it's a Procraft. Anyone got any thoughts?
