I don't know about that.. I have studied the components closely and I am still unsure. The brakes and seat post and derailleurs almost could have been made by Zeus... Those items do not have "made in England" printed on them anywhere.
Of course the cranks look very TA, but could have easily been made by Zeus too. I wonder if Ron Kitching acted as an adviser/facilitator/supplier to that early Lambert company?
But then the freewheel very clearly has a made in England mark...
Whatever the sources, it would be an interesting story to find all that out!
