A very nice chap

He ran a bike shop in South Street Wellington, Somerset, from the late 70s to mid or late 80s.

He was super helpful to me as I was rebuilding my dad's Pollard Superlite. It was difficult finding components to fit old Dunlop racing rims, but he managed to get them for me.

He took up framebuilding in later years, working with Stan Pike of Crewkerne.

Unfortunately I think that he died at quite an early age in the late 80's.

A reference is a reference, and this is good information for anyone else who happens to seek it...

I'm sure the Dunlop rims were difficult enough to find in the 80s. But now it's 2021 and yours truly needs one.

Welcome to bikeforums Jjrcd !
thanks!

If i recall rightly they were 32 spoke front and 36 rear. Devils own job to find a rear hub that fitted so that could use derailleurs.

I got the rims attached to the rest of the bike- which was double butted tubes, forks and stays with GB components and a 3 speed dynohub

Unfortunately it was pinched from a garage in grove oxfordshire some time in 1990.

I am still in the area, so i always keep an eye out for a lurid orange bike with a cantilever frame. Probably beaten up as hell now, or more than likely scrapped, unfortunately!

Cheers
