Hilary is right about Vic Edwards building Rondinella racing frames he was located at Crowlands Yard, Justems Lane, Romford and was still building there in the early 1980's. He would build anything but his speciality at this time was ultra short wheelbased time trialling frames. Some with only a 35" whelbase. Was also using a lot of teardrop or oval tubing at that time as well as 753. My Father told me that Vic worked for Leach's originally. This part of East London (Essex) especiallly Romford, Ilford, Seven Kings was at one time a real mecca for lightwieght builders, Rivetts, Duckett, Robinson to name just a few. Sorry I can't be of much help on this one. Emperor Sport were about in the 70's as well I think they were in the Slough area.
