Here it is - thanks bro - used Shrinkfit.
1947 Super Special, only 44 on the Hetchin's Register, bought new by my Grandad (£39.00).
Needs complete restoration, has Chater Lea BB and headclip (not shown) and Chater Lea dropouts,"fishplate"rears. Original alloy dome top seat post.
Originally it had a fully chromed rear triangle, fully chromed fork and chromed headlugs - colour was flambouyant red. What is unusual (according to Len) is the super rare seat tube transfer - which is huge and rarely seen. Hetchins rarely put Reynolds transfers on their frames - mine is on the top rear of the seat tube.
It is very light - I'll build it with period Weinmann 40h 27" alloy rims, a four speed hub (I don't want to widen the rear end) in the rear, an Atom 32h alloy front hub. The original Chater Lea (NoS 50t ring) chainset, a GB stem and touring handlebar and a Brookes B17. I'm undecided what brakes to use.
The objective is finish the build by Easter - I have all the components.
Hope you like, Rk.
