I have a 56.5cm squared 1960's claude butler frame and fork for sale. Beautiful 531 steel frame with nice lugs and pencil-thin seatstays but a flared headtube which means i can't get a headset cup to fit properly. Still rode it for months like this, constantly tightening the cups, without any problems. Original paint a bit tatty but no rust! Takes 27' wheels.
Not sure what it's worth to anyone but could be used as is or repaired by someone with the skills...
Pick-up Homerton E5.
Sorry for shit photos. Let me know if i've missed anything..
Chrisking lock or gripnut headset might solve no?
Oh, dunno about that shit. Will look into it. Cheers!
Still have this. Can't find original forks but will throw in some black 531 forks I have lying around.
My lbs successfully shimmed some headset cups in and I rode it with no issues for months.
Free to anyone who can collect from e5
