Claude Butler 1943

Here’s the next door text
Pre WWII Claude Butler racing frame with Holdsworth Fork. Frame is fillet brazed, seat tube measures 55cm c-t-c top tube 56cm c-t-c. Frame comes with matching pump, Claude Butler stem, head badge, and Holdsworth fork. I painted this bike orange back in the 80's. Picture of complete bike is an example of this frame built up with correct period components. Serial number is 2197 date stamp is May 1943
Too small for me but someone needs this. PM me and I will figure out how to send a link. I may be visiting the seller tomorrow for another item so I can take a look if you want

Prewar Claude Butler Race Frame - bicycles - by owner - bike sale (craigslist.org) Here is the link, saw it while browsing CL during our stop in Flagstaff, AZ. We just arrived back from Pensacola, FL at our Oregon home. Would grab this one, but will be too busy getting home/yard back in shape. Others in the area will surely give it a good home. Don

Cool bike. Given the mismatched fork and condition of the paint, I'd take a long hard look at UK ebay if I wanted a prewar British bike.
