Owned by: Ron Staffe
||1937 Claud Butler Anglo Continental, seat tube
and top tube 23", wheelbase 41",round section forks, Bastide fork
crown, frame and forks were restored by Bob Jackson's at Leeds
|| Airlite large flange front hub, 1937 Sturmey
Archer AW rear hub, on 26" Dunlop alloys. Gripfast front wingnuts,
Sturmey Archer rear wingnuts.
||Hybrid, Cyclo Standard twin wire combined with Sturmey Archer AW1937 built by Peter
Read of Phoenix Hub Gear Co, Milton Keynes. Top tube quadrant
type lever. Cyclo 3 speed converter from Nick Tithecott at H Lloyd's.
||LAM Super Dural
||Stem/bars: 1930s wide bars (48.5cm) of unknown
make on headclip stem.
||I bought the
E-bay and had it repainted by Bob Jacksons at Leeds. The forks
are not original to the frame but are the correct ones for the
year and model. I thought that the colours on the
Claud which is already posted went well together so I decided on those,
with double box lining and block letterng on the down tube instead of
script. I also had the rear dropouts slightly widened.
My gear conversion from the previous Simplex was inspired by Bob
Damper's article on hybrid gears. Lighting: Lucas front lamp, Drydex
rear lamp, both battery operated
