Hi, Peter---

Thanks so much for the links. What an incredible machine your Moorson is---lovely beyond belief. Fascinating piece by Pinkerton, too.

I know Soma has remade Lauterwassers, but, man, I wish somebody would make those Moorson adjustables again----they're absolutely wild, and the only bars you'd ever need!

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?  Is this what you have seen John? Pics of my 1936 Moorson twin tube at: is also an interesting article by John Pinkerton at:  Peter Brown, Lincolnshire, England
