Subject: [CR]Information on Braysher bikes, please

>From a person in England who advertised it on the CR for sale list, I picked up a V.T. Braysher bike. Do any members know of the frame maker or producer or whatever? Other than it leads one to curse the salty English air, it's a pretty neat frame and fork: lugs that I don't know and would appreciate any help in identifying (I could send jpegs--have not yet learned how to set up a website and today for the first time this year in this part of Ohio it's too hot to try), Campagnolo long horizontal drop-outs with eyelets. Some downtube shifter bosses that I can't quite figure out: on the righthand side for the rear derailleur is a normal downtube shifter braze-on with a cable-housing stop approximately six inches from the bottom bracket. The lefthand side has a mount about three inches above righthand shifter braze-on (but it does not have a shifter braze-on) that looks like a peg with a hole in it as if to act as a cable guide. It has a cable-housing stop corresponding to the righthand side. Is this arrangement for an application for a set of specific derailleurs? If so, which derailleurs? It currently has a clamp-on NR shifter set, which I know is correct.

Thank you as always.
