I recently found this Claud Butler ( my first bike was a C B from Holdsworths in 65 ) and decide it would make a good tourer...

size 54 ct-ct with shimano groupset, and stronglight triple crankset, 531st tubing.

It had scrappy paint and the odd small dents, so was dismantled and frame stripped read for paint...here's a photo blog of the story so far!

Now stripping underway...
Nitromors seems to have lost it's strength so another brand was used
