That's nice, looking forward to seeing it complete. I remember Wes's shop in Harrogate, when did the Keighley address come into play? I reckon there might have been a link with Sid Barrass who had a Keighley shop and who possibly took over the Harrogate shop when Wes left it??

Wes is still around and living in North Wales. I met him again a year or two back at the Newport Nocturne race. No connection with the trade - or even cycling - these days.

BTW, have you registered the frame with the MKM website?

Thanks for the info. Do you know when Wes stopped building frames? He learnt his trade at Carlton cycles, the latest Wes Mason frames I've seen were possibly late 80s early 90s.

No, not registered the frame... would they accept a Wes Mason?

You need to contact Robin who runs the site. I think anything that has a connection with MKM in some way is of interest although pre-MKM Wes Mason and Arthur Metcalfe frames are possibly more relative.
