1949, 24.5" (62cm) Claud Butler Avant Coureur frame and forks with beautiful bi-laminate lugs. Reynolds 531 throughout.

Very few dry miles since a stunning respray and chroming. It has had a few very small chips from build up but you have to really look for them and they are easily re-touched. The largest is on the head tube - you can just see it between the bottom of the badge and top of the lug in picture 2.

Pump pegs on the down tube and braze ons for lamp, rear brake cable and gear.
It has mudguard eyes on the dropouts, so a good all weather single speed or fixed gear frame.
NOS headset and seat clamp.

Rear spacing is 114cm. Seat tube c-t is 24.5" and the top tube c-c is 23".

I bought this frame planning to create a period build but I have too many projects in progress so I've decided to rationalise my collection a little!

£310 plus £20 postage.
