Cheers, maybe now I have retired I should dig it out of the shed and restore the rest of it, frame wont need anything but the rest of it will.

You've said it now, so you have to do it.... go on, you know you want to.

With the passing of the man it would be nice as a small reminder of the beauty of his work..

A 1952 A S Gillott...

Built by Ron Cooper in 1952. Ron would have been 20 years old and just out of his apprenticship when he built this frame. It's built up as a retro modern and has 1485 miles on her earlier this year.

A couple of years later and another Ron Cooper 1954 Gillott frame, still waiting to be restored/renovated, the frame has an interesting backstory, documented in real time on this forum. It was previously owned by 1936 Olympic Bronze pursuit medallist Harry Hill.
