I like things different some time . About 10 years ago I purchased an old bike that was well a wreak . I had no idea what it was other than it was built with Chater Lea lugs and drop outs as far as I could tell . Twin oilers on b/b and one on the head tube. It had been painted with a yard brush .
I reckoned it was worth saving given it age . A respray followed and I Named it the "The Derby Flyer" It was later identified on this forum as possibly an Early F W Evans by Terry. This is the end result. A fixed /single speed free wheel . Hence the back brake.

27 in wheels and mudguards would fill the gaps a bit in what is a crackin frame.
Sorry if that's a bit harsh - as it is, it just don't please my eye

Getting close to closing this one. A couple of hours left if someone wants to enter still.
