Since putting my Witcomb frame up for sale on the list, I have had many enquiries regarding getting in touch with them for renovations, transfers etc.They can be contacted at:

Witcomb Cycles 25 Tanners Hill LONDON SE8 UK

I don't think they are on email and I am reluctant to give out the phone number on a general list as Ernie Witcomb who is still in the shop at the age of 84 is the one who usually answers and he can be on the phone for ages! I will give it to anyone who contacts me off list. I don't know how many frames they make these days. Ernie assures me that contrary to the myth he was never a framebuilder. In the fifties and sixties there were ten framebuilders but I gather it's only his son Barry who is left to wield the brazing torch.

Does anyone remember if the Mansfield saddle which is on Dale's list of price highs as selling at $1025 was a North Road - the type with flat alloy rails and Swallow type top with lacing underneath?
