Im a bit obsessed by Witcombs being a Deptford boy - collection is now at 5!

She is a 1964 Witcomb 531 frameset, lovely Nervex pro lug set. Built up with mainly period parts (Hindiniums are a bit old really). Its a lovely ride for the country lanes.

Like her best from the rear :wink:

Looks fab, lovely looking frame.

I've never seen mudgaurds like that before, very stylish, but i wouldn't like to get them dirty though.
