I have 3 Laings. Two are tourers that were built in the 70"s (Hi-E, TA, etc) for women riders (both 52 cm, if I recall correctly). Also have a 53 cm with 57 top tube COLIAN that was built when Colin's son, Ian, was doing the painting (hence, the name). It was built for Jim Lauf (1949 national champion and 1952 Olympian) after he moved back to the States (Sun City, AZ) and stated racing in Senior Olympic events.

David -

Congratulations on your new acquisition. I ,too, have an early Colin

Laing. I think mine may be even a bit earlier, guessing around

72/74ish. I've outfitted it with '72 Campy N-Rec kit. What is

interesting about the one I have is that the name is hand painted in

rather ornate lettering on a painted black panel on the down tube. Mine

is orange, with white lug lining, and the lugs are very similar to

yours. It was custom built for someone who's name is also hand painted

on the top tube (can't remember the name at the moment). I can post

some pix when I get back off the road. I've also spoken with Dale about

adding Laing to the CR-site listings, and I think it's something that's

in the works. Jeff Archer also has a really interesting Colin Laing.

Didn't Colin's son also start building frames? In Arizona maybe?

Definitely a KOF.
