I would like to say a big Thankyou to Roger Tushingham, for Scanning and sending me the Original details from the Catalogue.

Big Respect.

Carl.

Cool as I rekon, at last a definitive spec list, and some detail LONG overdue.

I do Adrian, but im holding back with it a little as i hope to get just a little more detail, and HOPEFULLY some colour pics too, sadly i cant speak to Mike untill middle to end of next week.

but what i will say for the minute is this...., " its everything i remembered it to be and more ". (And i have only every seen it once briefly in the windsurfing center Bitd).

FWIW..........this is IMHO quite possibly the Rarest "significant" Uk mountain bike on the Planet.

When Roger Tushingham and Lester Noble wanted something to do when waiting for the wind to come up, so they could go windsurfing and sailing and still keep fit, they decided to go Mountain Bike riding, they used Muddyfoxes, BUT when the brand became more of an Urban fashion range, they decided to source there own and call them Tushingham.

That was when the B52 was born................see above......!

But these guys were racers, and with all serious racers comes a passion.
A "Need" to be the best you can be, and for that you need the tools to do the Job.

And so they designed a race bike built for the sort of terrain we see here in the UK.

It was aptly named......... The " Tushingham Works Replica ".

A beautifully designed fillet brazed handbuilt Race Chassis, made using the NEW lightweight " TANGE PRESTIGE" tubeset.

the choice of builder commissioned for this design was the Legendary " Dave Yates".

From this collaboration was spawned a bike company, that gave us even more Legendary bikes, namely "The Orange Clorkwork", The Beautifully fillet brazed Uk fabricated "Orange Formula", and in more recent years future Classics like the Orange MR O , The Five, The 222, and going one Further WORLD CHAMPIONS like STEVE PEAT.

THE TUSHINGAM WORKS REPLICA, AND THE FELLAS THAT MADE IT ALL POSSIBLE.

You can't possibly trust a man who spends that much time sculpting his facial hair:

has serious mid-life crisis, or recently-divorced-man-hanging-out-in-a-twentysomething-bar written all over it.

This, on the other hand, is a quality beard owned by a real mans man:
