I've been looking around the web and can't find anything on Dunelt except Sheldon saying, "Dunelt was a second rank brand. Many Dunelts feature a fork similar to the Raleigh dimpled fork, only with a flattened top." I don't doubt this, but I pulled a ladies "sports" style out of a dumpster the other day and found it to be as nice as the best Raleighs. It has John Bull stuff all the way around, nice lugs, nice braze-on pump pegs, a second "headbadge" on the back of the two-tone fenders, and a nice fork different from the one Sheldon describes. On the other hand it doesn't have a Brooks and the crankset seems really standard. Looking at the Menotomy discussion list people seem to be asking the same questions with few answers. Years of production, where thay were made, and catalog pics and info would be great? Oh, the year on the hub is '62.

PS: I'm still looking for link submissions for the classic bike resource page.
