What is the serial no.on the BB or steerer tube?. That will establish the date. Headbadge looks like the Holden era but might be a replacement. Art Link,San Antonio,TX

Hi all

I've just picked up a Claud Butler Olympic Road. The general look of the frame, and the fact that it's equipped with a flip flop hub and a cottered crankset led me to suspect it was 50's vintage, but a look round the net suggest it could be more like 70's. Links to some pictures are below - can anyone help me date this bike?

Any help greatly appreciated.......
