STEEL, M: Old Northumberland Yard, Tyne and Wear, England. Made Joe Waugh and Dave Yates. As early as 1954.
WAUGH, Joe: Old Northumberland Yard, Howdon, Wallsend, England. See Steel, M.
Also from the Used Bike Buyers Guide. It is always fun for me to see how framebuilders seem to move from one company to another, occasionally building on their own. I'll add the link to M. Steel Cycles, thanks. I can see I was "off" just a little on the year M. Steel was established as the website says 1894!! Wow! I'll correct that too. Lou Deeter, Orlando FL

Check out Dave Yeats's Shop, M. Steel Cycles
Another builder associated with this operation is Joe Waugh. A British friend of mine living in Columbus OH has 3 beautiful bikes from these builders. The Joe Waugh is at least 20 years old and is in fantastic shape, and the two Dave Yeats frames are only a year or two old, but are definitely KOF. Good build details and quality, not overly fancy, but very clean. I have never seen any others.
