RORY O¹BRIEN ROAD FRAME 1970s 22in (centre to top seat tube) It is 122mm across the rear ends and has a 22in ctc top tube. Rory O¹Brien¹s shop was i n Romford just to the east of London - his frames were built by a number of local framebuilders, this one has all the hallmarks of Vic Edwards whose workshop was only just down the road. The shot-in rear stays and lugs are very typical of his work. The paint is very scruffy. $95 http://images.andale.com/f2/118/129/2070911/1120717238339_Rory_OBrien.jpg
