I 've tended to think of the Clubman as somewhat of a mystery bike. I don't think I have seen one in good and stock condition.

I just looked around a house for sale in NZ today

Briiliant house, 100 yrs old, original wallpaper, in need of squillions spent to make it modern and habitable

BUT...
In the garage was a 50s-ish Raleigh, not a Clubman, but it has a set of bars that are so damn' close to Lautenwassers that the average punter would not spot the diiference.
in fact they may be Lautenwassers, but I am assuming from the likely age of the bike (50s - 26" Endricks, frame has integral seatstays, etc) that it is too late for the 'real deal' Lauties

I offered the real estate agent $20 for the bike but of course I will up it..

may go back tomorrow, if I do I will take the Canon G2 and snap it

The bike in the picture has the 531-on-a-diagonal, butted forks stays and tubes decal. I thought the Clubman was straight gauge 531.

I'm quite sure - as is the owner of the bike - that amongst the things done to that frame - when someone sprayed liberal touchups on it - was to add a later 531 transfer.

It's easy enough to tell from the seatpost diameter.

The downtube decal is completely different than on my '50 and '51 Clubman bikes:


As are the lugs as compared to my '50:


Here's the Reynolds decal on the '51:

I know, and it was the main reason I convinced him not to respray it, despite the poor touchups on it at the moment. It's an oddity, definitely an oddity; lugs and all.
