Love the bike and love the story behind the design and the build. I'd nominate it for BoTM. Any chance of a few pics of the construction? Is it lugged or fillet brazed? I love the attention to detail like the pump pegs and positioning of the cage mounts - a lot of thought has gone in to it.

As for today's full sussers being streets ahead, they're certainly not here! Welcome to Retrobike.

It's possible although I would imagine he is in his eighties now.
I want to try and get hold of one of his road frames if I can. When I left Cornwall he had only been established a few months. I remember seeing a couple on the wall of Danny Deakins shop in Cambourne but beyond that is a mystery.
