I could do with a quality set of vintage 27 11/4 inch tyres, they are not easy to come by
I like that the your hubs have the original wheel nuts by the way, well if not original then definitely of the period.
They look superb, I'm jealous, it's incredible how light these old wheel sets are.
I love the tyres are they a pair and are they salvageable.
How about the all important bearing surfaces.?
Nahh..I think baby blue was the height of fashion back then, or so my Wife with the MA in design told me when I asked her which colour to paint my 51 Gillott.
Consequently it's painted the same colour.
Bayliss Wiley hub
My money's on Bayliss Wiley.!
Both very nice.
Wow baby blue..!
Nice where did you get it sprayed?
Very common lugs they could be from any number of frame builders, your best bet is finding a frame number, is there anything on the fork steerer, saying that there was talk on the "OT Dartford" thread that the forks were not original to the frame.?
Sounds interesting do you have any photos.
The owner of Harry Perry cycles in Woolwich might have heard of OT cycles, or maybe Welling cycles in.. Welling, if indeed it is a make of frame..
