OK! Mind blown! I thought mine had the incorrect fork on it! Looks like its probably the right one/ WOw. Thanks for posting that!

Very lovely collection!

They made this style of lugs for at least forty years after Bill designed them.

Condor Vintage Frames and Bicycle Guide – Condor Cycles

Plenty of information straight from the company - which is still in business in London (but now owns a small factory in Venice, Italy where the steel Condor frames are made).

Hurlow, W B 'Bill' (classiclightweights.co.uk)

And there's a feature on Bill Hurlow from the Classic Lightweights site.

Cheers!
