    Claud Butler Identicication

    I have owned this bike for 37 years and just finished restoring it for the second time. I think it is a 1953 Claude Butler International Sprint bike. The serial number is 91153 and it has some unusual features especially at the rear of the frame with its drop down lugs. I am open to any other suggestions as to what model it may be.

    Lovely bike, have you tried this site: http://homepage.ntlworld.com/nkilgariff/

    It has a lot of old catalogues from Claud Butler, you may be able to find a picture of your bike. It could be an International Club.

    I have a Claud Butler Torino (early 1970's) that I am going to restore; get it resprayed to something like the original colour.

    Hope you are successful in finding the model of your bike

    I am anything but an expert on the Claude Butler line of bicycles, however, a customer of mine recently sent me pictures of a 1954 Claude Butler Jubilee, and your bicycle looks to have a remarkably similar frame set.

    I just went to look for the picture, but it would appear that I have deleted the email the picture was attached to. Sorry about that but this 1954 Claude Butler catalog might help shed some light on the issue...



    According to the catalog, the Sprint model was of track bike configuration, and the one you have is not a track bike, in my opinion.

    When you are doing your searching for Claude Butler, add the word catalog, and you might get more results that will prove helpful.
