Lawrencia Cycles and Sport is a shop in the Camberwell / Hawthorn area of Melbourne.They have been there since at least the 50's.I have been told that they were amongst the earlier people here to adopt more European style geometry on their frames.Closer, steeper etc.I believe they did build their own frames in house but if they didn't then they certainly had influence over the builders that they used.While they were once a high end bike shop they are now just another shop that sells bikes and sporting gear.Read, basketballs,skateboards.This bike may be a nice example of what they once sold under their name Geoff Duke Melbourne Australia
