Subject: [CR]Speed Records In History & Lenton Question

I forwarded the post on the Absolute Speed Record to a friend who's interested in that topic, and he asked that I pass along this related link on one of the earliest record attempts.

On the personal record front, did my first (and perhaps only) fixed-gear century yesterday on a Raleigh Lenton Grand Prix, a very sweet frame. It's one of the gold & white Reg Harris models, and I suspect it's mid 50s but am not certain. Does anyone know of serial number lists for those bikes or the years they were produced?
