    My Witcomb

    Many thanks to everybody who chipped in, gr8 to see some lovely old bikes and components too, with a bit of help and a bit more digging around I can definitely say it is a Witcomb LX Professional, 1958 - 62 era, some more research is needed to try to make use of the serial number and possibly...

    Cheers Mike ;) It was a summer love in, new components added soon after I picked her up, managed to bag a few Cols, been genuinely impressed with how she handles.

    Carlton Clubman 1980

    Picked up this vintage Carlton back in early summer, it was in good working order when I collected it. I was keen to upgrade the budget Suntour gearset to the Suntour SVX in keeping with the period and quality builds that Carlton 531 bikes came out of the factory with. Paintwork is original...
