1948 P.T. Stallard

Here is my latest acquisition and project, a 1948 P.T. Stallard Montherly. I picked it up at the market at Eroica California this year. I am just getting started with an assessment of what I have and what I will do with it. More at this link, https://utahrandonneur.wordpress.com

According to Robin Walker's write-up on the Classic Lightweights site, all of Stallard's post war build sheets have survived and reside with the Wolverhampton Library, who will make copies for a small fee. But you probably already knew that. Regardless, it's very rare that you can get that sort of information for a 70 year old bicycle! I'd give you two thumbs up for the pending restoration but the emoticons seem to have with the new format.

Edit: Found them!

I'm glad you bought that. I almost pulled the trigger, and have been second guessing myself ever since. (It's on the edge of being too small for me, and I have a 1963 Flying Scot frame waiting restoration.)

​​​​​​I first heard about PT Stallard when researching bikes from the Wolverhampton area (where my brother in law hails from). By all accounts, he was one of the driving forces bringing mass start road racing to Britain.

The period parts are available.
For my 1948 lightweight, I went with the reasonably available components for the year.

are you planning on riding it? (challenging with the wooden rims you have a preference for)
The Campagnolo RD and hubs would have come much later so would be a distraction.
The parts are generally available with a little patience (UK ebay and other sources) and like you, I have to factor in international postage.
I have a 1946, 1948 and two 1952 frames with period components, so I have been there.

The 1948 Stallard catalogue is at the V-CC
library, and includes the Montlhery (note the spelling) model.
The Holdsworth Aids for 1949 has the available components. Often frames were purchased and then components added. This minimised the post-war sales tax burden. This provides the opportunity to work with other components available in 1948.
A 1948 Stallard Montlhery on Classic Lightweights has a nice selection of period components

I have to agree with @Big Block, about 'period correct.' Should be a pretty bike, whatever you do!
