If you look on the headset badge,it says Clapham,Ealing & Lewisham.W.Hinds are the jewellery shop chain,now F Hinds,I think.They took over a couple of the defunct Claud Butler shops in the early 70's.He also started Hammer House of Horrer at Ealing Studio.
If you got your bike in the last few months,it could have come from the same source as mine,as there were a couple of track frames sold as well.
Yes same source , There were two track frames offered on Gumtree , one green and one purple , missed the green one by a couple of hours , but bagged the purple one , which being a road / track and my exact size was perfect for me . Have to say I don't normally bother with Gumtree , I just had a look out of idol curiosity , and there it was, couldn't believe my luck, I'd been looking for a interesting 50t's track frame in good original condition for a long time , it was also embarrassingly cheap
. My frame has the name Kevin Scriven (or something like that ) on the top tube . I'd post some pics , but that would mean having to clean the bike
