You are a bugger...., i cant say it will spoil the surprise and give it away,

lets just say its a very very Rare Steel frame thats handmade, silver soldered and fillet brazed, made right here in the UK, still wearing its original race jacket and specification, which does include ROLLERCAMS.... :shock:


Damn you!

OMG, how do you do it?!?!?! :)

Pulled another rabbit out of the hat have you?


No, no rabbits out of the hat, this one needs to stay with its rightful owner, but he has requested my help with it. which was kinda cool to be honest.

Thanks for the vote of confidence Gio, i dont think they will need anything else other than perhaps help with refinishing and/or sourcing period correct replacement parts, anything else would make me feel like i was trying to teach a grandmother to suck eggs.... :oops: but i cant wait to see the pics, and help anyway i can, they are more than capable, but its the modern world for these guys now..., help from me, is only cus im still living in the past... :lol:

What do we know about this?

The only one on here seems to be Rod Saetan's bike, here:

http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=167553

This one is slightly different, with a different fork and dropouts with mudguard eyes. Fillet brazed with a lugged BB.

Were these production bikes or made to order? They don't seem to be as common as the road bikes.

My Overbury's perched on a WW2 gun emplacement, with a back-drop of JB666's Clockwork and The Needles :D
Doesn't get much more British
