Subject: [CR]Hugh Porter frames?

I'm working on a new track frame for myself and I'm trying to model it after a Hugh Porter frame I sold 15-16 years ago. I can't remember any actual numbers for the frame beyond it being 54 cm square. So I thought I'd look at the web and see what I could find. First checked the CR site, nothing. Next was the online British Bike Museum, nada. At least Wikipedia had Hugh's bio, but zip on any bikes with his name one them. Google found me an old ad for a Hugh Porter touring frame, but that was it.

So what's the story with these frames? I know Hugh himself didn't build them, but who did? Are these bikes actually hard to find? Did I again give away a rare bike in a fit of boredom? thanks, Brandon"monkeyman"Ives Vancouver, B.C.
