Interestingly, I just acquired two Ephgrave track bikes. Both were imported into the US as frames sometime around 1959 or 1960 (I was able to speak to the actual importer) and fitted out here. One is a #1 with spearpoint lugs and lollypops and has the serial #3787 LE. It is quite a piece of work. The other, however, is also interesting in that it is a lugless fillet brazed frame with no adornment at all and all three main tubes of equal diameter (somewhat oversize is seems). Although it has been repainted, the serial number on this one is 3335LE. Edward Albert Chappaquau, NY
