Claud Butler frame serial number 4343

I recently picked up a Claud Butler frame with serial number of 4343. The lugs are not elaborate, it does have an oiling hole in the left hand side of the bottom bracket, an upward curved rear brake mount and a shifter mount on the right side of the down tube. The forks were originally chromed and the original colour was light blue.

Welcome to the forum flightless avian!

Frameset sounds like it is definitely a "Claud Claud" - pre-Holdsworthy.

Forum has no shortage of Butler enthusiasts.

If you can find a way to post some photos you will get meaningful responses.

One means is to post images to a host site and enter the link here. There is a rule against new members posting URL's so you will need to munge the addie a bit.
