Well, I started this thread discussing frames with Nervex Professional lugs, and although that feature still alludes my collection I have actually been on the lookout for a special British frame suitable for time trialing c. 1950, as I've been slowly collecting all of the right parts for such a build for roughly two years already... This isn't "attainable" like any ol' frame with Nervex Pro lugs, but it fits the spirit of where many of you headed with your posts! I'm just now finishing up the transaction to purchase this fine 1952 Claud Butler Olympic Sprint with road/path features (fender eyelets and drilled rear brake bridge) with lovely bilaminate lugs that became standard on the model that very year. Looking forward to putting together what will be my first period fixed gear build! I love riding fixed but have only had more modern commuters or weird conversions I've done in the past.

With this build complete I will only be on the lookout for one more bicycle in the foreseeable future, which will be another British frame of the era that is both perfectly my size and has all of the features for a classic 3-speed SA build.
