In the old days, he would stamp a number on the bottom bracket of each bike. That number was kept in a brown book - frame number, size, model and customer name. When Dad moved back to England in 1992, he sold the shop. I thought I had grabbed the book and put it in my house. I have since moved 3 times, and tried to find the book and have not. So to tell you anything about how old, who made for, how many made since at this time, I cannot. I really can tell from the stickers we got those from England during my trip in 1990. So probably during that time frame this bike was made.
During the 1990's until he retired, he mostly made road frames. Maybe 10-30 more were tandems, a couple of mountain bike frames etc.
I would just ride the bike and enjoy it.
hope this note helps a bit.

For tandems, in the old days again, he used to handwrite the name of the customer on the boob tube. I don't see that on your photo.
