That's nice and a nice feel to the whole photo set.

I've often wondered why British guards don't come further down the wheel like this, instead of having to stick dirty great flaps on them.

That is a vary handsome cycle!

I know virtually nothing of this brand and have no idea what it would've come build with originally but your build really works 8) Great photies too, hope (and assume) you got home safely after quaffing that bottle of bourbon!

I did get home safely, though I did have to stop to fix a flat. Thank you.

Jack Taylor has a cult following here in SF, though they were based out of Stockton on Tees (I say they as they were 3 brothers, Norm, Ken, and Jack). You can find a lot of history and photos here: http://www.blackbirdsf.org/taylor/ and here: http://www.classicrendezvous.com/Britis ... Taylor.htm

I highly recommend watching this video clip: http://www.classicrendezvous.com/Britis ... _movie.asx
such character and class!

Thanks! Its raining here in San Francisco again, so this bike has been seeing a bit more use as it's the only bike I own that has fenders. I love how it handles.
