Hi, Johnny---

Moorson made one, and our own Jay Van De Velde offered a '38 for sale in May of 2008.

Also, I believe I have in my archives somewhere an image of a white Paramount (British, not Schwinn) which has twin tubes.

Cheerio,

In the 'Dancing uphill' Book.The life of Charles Holland, two photos of him in the mid 1930s show his bike as a twin DOWN tube frame, one photo has a BSA chainset the other same frame with what looks like a Williams chainset. I know that Saxon made twin tube frames, BUT who made a twin down tube frame in the 1930s? Just curious, Norris any answers? John Crump Old23FebHipHipHorayBrit. Parker Co USA
