Ken, Think you will find that Bill Hurlow was only there for a very short time. Harry and his wife had separated and she was left to the run the business. This is the time when Bill Hurlow came to manage the firm. It soon closed. Neville Ireland the VCC marque enthusiast for Rensch and Paris cycles is at this moment writing the history on this make. I have been helping a little with his research it was me who introduced him to Tom Board and arranged for them to meet. Oh and the Ephgrave that I am selling on Ebay was the most exspensive model then. This is an early one which predates the Super No.1 by quite a few years. Got the original catalogue to prove it. And if you are the gentleman who gave me all the information on the Fontalloy I think you got that one terribly wrong as well judging by emails from CR list members. What ever you do don't give up the day job but I appreciate your help.

Yours in Cycling Michael Butler Huntingdon UK.

>(both of which he doesn't speak very highly of).
