|All finished and ready for the Tweed run.|
"The chap who writes about his Fothergill frame asks about the number and possible date. The number 83 will have nothing to do with the date. May be a part number for the lugs or something.
The frame looks to be about mid 1960's - 1970 at latest. Very few builders were using Simples drop-outs. Campag were virtually dominent by this time.
Most builders by this time were using "italian" type lugs - smooth and not too ornate. This frame has the appearance of a Johnny Berry in style but Jim Fothergill - who I knew very well indeed - did build some of this nature."
