GILLOTT FLEUR DE LYS TAPER TUBE 25in (ctt) FRAME from 1954 with 22 3/4in (ctt) top tube. It has just been very tastefully re-enamelled by Argos Cycles in a flam blue colour with off white head and seat tube panels and complete with the correct transfers. Taper tube Gillott frames are very rare - ones with Fleur De Lys lugwork even more so. $945
GRANDINI FANCY LUG FRAME 1960s 23in (ctt) and with a 22 1/2in (ctc) top tube. It is 120mm across the rear ends. The lovely lugs have been beautifully filed and profiled - Grandini was a name used by Youngs of Lewisham in south-east London. Their top frames were built by Bill Philbrook - this one I am certain was Bill¹s work - it is quite exquisite - look at the reinforcement behind the seat lug. Bill Philbrook also built under his own name and was one of the top British framebuilders of the 1960s ranking alongside Bill Hurlow. It has just been refinished in gunmetal grey with an off-white head tube and gold lined. $425 Pictures can be seen at: http://images.andale.com/f2/118/129/2070911/1079146059389_Grandini.jpg http://images.andale.com/f2/118/129/2070911/1078823976979_Grandini_details.j pg
