Please find the attached photos of Jack Taylor Super Clubman #5552.
It is 23.5"x 23.5". I am pretty sure the build date is 1966. This
is the original finish and apparently it was a show frame which
was hidden up in Jacks attic. Thanks to Mike Thompson for not buying
it when he first saw it!!
am currently building this frame up with first generation Dura Ace
bits along with a set of Phil Wood Hi/Lo Campagnolo Delta Strada
tubular wheels built by Derby King. I am new to center pull brakes
so the period Mafac Racers may not stay on. The modulation is pleasant
but they have a hard time stopping all 200lbs of bike and I.
have been surprised by peoples negative reaction to the use of Dura
Ace with a frame painted like the French Flag. Well no offense to
those who love French components, but I enjoy the practical aspects
of the Japonnaise. I would sacrifice practicality for a Cyclo Benelux
Super 60 but I cant find one to fit the Campagnolo hanger on this
frame if they even made one. I am also looking for a period bar/stem
combo in 120mmx44cm which has proved elusive. Nitto does the job
to Kevin Sayles, I now know the headset is a T.D.C. Italia. Produced
in Birmingham in the mid 60s.
and I hope you like the pics.
