That looks mint. I've got a Charge Spoon in Brown and I like the way it looks (and how it feels after a couple of hours on the road!) but that Wrights saddle is just perfect.

Nice bike. I think Ernie Clements Cycles bought in frames and stickered them up when yours was built. Anyone know who actually made them? Falcon perhaps?

Back in the early days they had their own workshops and produced frames like this one from 1948 that I restored shown here http://www.classiclightweights.co.uk/bi ... ts-rb.html

The frame-building side went bust after a few years but the cycle shop continued in business.

Beautiful bike, very nice refurb.

What happened to the brown hoods, by the way...
