  • Damm wanted these for my 1946 Jack Taylor! Snooze you lose

  • I couldn't resist as soon as I saw them.

  • Wow, nice score with the wheels!

  • Thanks @Jonny69, I think they will suit the frame well.

  • Contacted VCC enthusiast Murray Maclean for his thoughts on the frame and Murray came back to me with -

    Going by the frame number I would guess that it was built in 1947.
    I have a very original “Club” model from 1948 and my lug work is much simpler and pre-war in style than your frame – so it is a more up-market frame than the “Club”model – I have no data to be able to fully identify different models, as the pictures in their catalogues are not of close enough detail to be able to see the lug work.
    All that I can say is that it could be their “Touring” model or may be an version of their “Super “ frame.
    As most frames were built to order there would have been a lot of variation in the choice of parts in the build. I think that the embossed wording on the underside of the bottom bracket relates to the manufacturer of the part. sorry not to be any more helpful – the lack of period data is the limiting factor.

  • Pedals arrived and surprised at just how lightweight they are - 11.6 oz for the pair.
    Oil ports on the axle -
