I saw your ad on ebay, and was tempted to bid myself, but i thought i best save my money to get my Burton frame built up.
As my family are Wolverhampton folk, i was always told that Fred Williams shop was the best bike shop in the town.
....and indeed still is a very good shop! Close(ish) to the centre of town, there was also Poyner's on the Dudley Road too, open until comparatively recently (late 90s?) but seemed to suddenly disappear without trace.
As for the earlier reference to Japanese-made Burtons, I recall seeing them in the early 90s on shopping trips to Stafford and thinking they were a bit of an oddity, since most other local shops selling own-badged frames (Fred Williams, "Nutty" Russell, Poyner, etc.) went for UK-made ones in Reynolds tubing.
