> Although no longer a keen cyclist I'd like to find out more about my old
> Claud Butler that I "borrowed" off my dad nearly 30 years ago. The
> following details are all I have to go on at the moment.
>
> Bought around 1947 it has a lugless frame painted dark red/burgundy. It
> was a 3 gear bike with a small cog on a sprung spur below the chainset to
> tension the chain. Gear change was effected by a small fork that
> straddled the chain and pushed it one way or the other. (This has now been
> replaced with the standard 5-speed derailier but I still have all of the
> original parts.) It has very narrow drop handlebars and a Brooks
> leather saddle. Also, I have a vague memory of my father saying that it
> was made of "Reynolds 531 tubing", but I don't know if that's relevant.
> If any of you could shed any light on this bike I'd be very grateful.
>
> Many thanks
