The eBay frame is a Webster, from Websters shop in Leicester. Its not from the builder listed on Classic Lightweights.
Websters shop was owned by Daryl Webster, who was one of the great stars of British cycling in the eighties. i think he owned it with one of his brothers. There were three Webster brothers, but Daryl was the best. I don't think any of the brothers built the fames themselves, although I may be wrong. I suspect they bought them in, ready made.
Daryl had frequent problems with the governing bodies of British cycling, and this, combined with suffering from depression, caused him to retire from cycling. He now lives in South Wales. He was an incredible talent, and probably never achieved his full potential.
As I recall, the frames are solid and well made, but nothing special. Unlike Daryl !
