I'll have to scan it out of the magazine - and it's not a very good one. 1950's B&W printing etc. but I'll see what I can do.

well i managed a short trundle on the new Pollard and even with a very notchy bottom bracket due to being unused since 2002 i can honestly say its a glorious machine and one that i will enjoy riding .

unsure of its age but has a grease nipple port on top of the bottom bracket , track style rearward facing rear dropouts , 531 forks that were used when re commissioned in 1999 by previous owners father . total weight as in pic is 10 - 11 kg so light for a stealie .

An oiler port on the bb and those braze-ons for rear mudguards would suggest oldish. 50's or older anyone?

May have a suprise for you Martin! PM sent...
