Well it would be hard to match

Leaver Gough Nuttall

for the name of a cycle manufacturer.

Great Britain (where else) and they made some nice touring machines, pre-war.

Another headscratcher especially during the darkest days of the Cold War was Britain's "Comrade" Cycle Co. Did Gary Burgess ride a Comrade when at Oxford? Or perchance a Dawes "Courier".

Name of a cycle:

Sublime: Super Python (Carlton) Vox Populi (Phillips) Moth Magnificent (Armstrong) Pathfinder (Rudge-Whitworth) Clubman (Raleigh)

Ridiculous: Savernake (Hobbs) Wanderlustre (Dawes) Classique Amalgam (Dayton)

Peter Kohler Washington DC USA (in the 50s tomorrow and a glorious day on my Clubman beckons..)
