That is a lovely tandem. It appears to have the original Resilion cantilever brakes and I feel sure that they are original Chater Lea pedals. I particularly like the decals also - particularly those...

No question that this rim originally had the yellow Fiamme label. I have 2 pairs of wheels with these rims. One pair on Campagnolo hubs dated 1968 , the other on Normandy hubs from the mid 70's - so...

A dated receipt showing a frame number is very useful as it helps to establish a timeline for frames enabling dating other machines. So posting an image (also for the V-C C files) would be great. The...

Upon further examination, the Grubb track frame refinished with later decals is probably a 1930's frame, but the frame number does not fit with the Grubb number system. In the early 30's they were...

I have now learned that these rims were available as early as 1934. I have found an advertisement in ‘Cycling’ dated March 2nd 1934 advertising these. It seems that the...
