I bought this in a while back but have decided to scale back a little, as an unmanageable list of projects isn’t doing my head much good.
It’s pretty ratty and has a small dent in the seat tube (see next to last pic). I was going to build it up as is but it could use a repaint.
It doesn’t have a rear canti bridge (not sure if that’s how it was built) so will need a hanger off the seatpost bolt.
Measurements are 13.25” from centre of bb to centre of top tube and 16.5” centre to top. The top tube measures 21.25” c-c actual, so effective will be a fraction longer. Asking £65 plus postage for the bare frame.
I was going to run a fillet brazed straight blade Bob Jackson fork, but I ended up not buying it. It’s still available and I can put you in touch with the seller if required.

EDIT: after chatting with another forum member, it could actually be a Bromwich. The shape of the chainstays (see 4th pic) does look very Bromwich. I know the UK scene was a little incestuous back then so who knows. Either way I believe one to be as desirable as the other.

Very nice! I’m looking for something like that (as usual) too small for me though,

All the best mate

Thanks Joe. I'd like to keep it but there are too many others in the queue

Considering this. Do you think this could fit me? 5ft 8 and a half, 31.2 inches inseam. Thanks
I don’t want to be held responsible if it doesn’t but I’m 5’7” and it suits me
