thanks for adding your bike mate, GF...in smokey B, didnt Chipps have one or test one BITD...?
hopefully you posting yours might lead to many more, like a lot of uk builders VERY overlooked by so many....., Dam Fools....
Dead right! I've a copy of the article with Chipps' Smokey Bacon Fuquay tested against a Dave Yates and Pace RC200. Certainly inspiration...
Thans for adding the Fuquay - I don't know much about these at all - they look very nice - can anyone add some history info onto this thread?
Looking forward to seeing what you do with the Donohue
Here's an interview with the man himself:

An American, he apparently learned his craft Stateside at Serotta before venturing on his own this side of the pond. Worked with Columbus, Ritchey Logic and Tange Prestige Ultimate/Ultralight tubesets.
As I said, the Donohue will be slow in progress. Just happy to get my hands on a fillet brazed, hand-build British steel double-U wishbone frame. Going to need a few parts first...
