I saw this very interesting frame on eBay, and am wondering if anyone knows any of the history or reputation of the Ace bikes from Down Under.

One interesting note, the seller says the lugs are hand cut English. They appear to be identical to the fancy lugs on the '72 Raleigh Pro we were discussing not too long ago. So I don't know about handcut, but they probably are English.

Also the seller is going to include a Brampton bottom bracket, either cottered or cotterless. What crank arms will work with this bottom bracket (other than, of course, Brampton)?

Tom Adams in Kansas City, where Spring is in the air, so it must be time to acquire another bike.
