Yes, Mr. Way illustrated many articles for Cycling back in the 1950s& 60s (maybe longer, I just remember seeing those years) His style is very much reminiscent of Rebour although he uses a slightly heavier & free flowing line and less cross hatching... He used a more engineering-illustrative style which featured exploded views and detail analysis.

I think these are his illustrations of Carltons at the Earls Court Show in the early 1960s:
