Thanks. It cleaned up pretty good for a 1987 model.

Looks like the precursor to today's light weight TIG welded steel frames.

Thanks your comments, yes there were probably hundreds of specialist bike builders and the 1930's, 1940's and 1950's were the heyday of the Club Riders, cars were too expensive for most people everyone cycled, of course it could not last and towards the 1960's it tailed off and the big boys (Raleigh) bought up all the competitors but it still left the small specialist builders and some are still going like Mercian of Derby who still build tailor made frames/bikes to order plus offering a restoration service, there are others too like Condor & Ribble and many more one man band frame builders who today are undergoing a revival as cycling has become more popular.

Hey @camjr, You have an excellent bike, and a very cool jersey. Why the grumpy face?

Funny. 3 reasons: I'm old, the heat index was already over 100 degrees, and my bottom bracket started telling me it was time to shut it down until it was serviced. Looks like I'll be spinning miles on my flat bar Fuji until I have the chance to address the bottom bracket.

Cheers!
