CR, Here is an illustration of the Sun Wasp scanned from an original Sun sales brochure.
This Sun sales brochure is undated, but lists Sid Patterson's 1952 World Pursuits Championship in Paris. I suppose that would date it for the latter part of 1952 and thus into 1953. Other than components, I see differences from Chad's bike in tops of the seat stays, lugwork, pump pegs. I don't know what is the "Tour of Britain colours" referenced in this brochure and if that is the same as Chad's colour scheme. Chrome and seat tube graphics look the same. Sharper eyes than mine can probably spot other things. Chad's pictures are at http://www.kp2.com/sunwasp/chadsbike.htm
