  • Ekla bicycle lugs
    here below They were also available though the Continental importers Fonteyn Co who offered a larger range of fork crowns in their 1950 catalogue Many of these will be familiar to collectors of Classic bikes These attractive designs were very popular and used independently of the lug sets and vice versa Similarly the short chamfered top eyes to the seat stays were not always adopted 1950s F W Evans with

  • Oscar Egg lugs
    lugs shown in the advertisment above As the advert shows the importers of the Oscar Egg lugs were also based in Manchester so it would have been very convenient for L H Brookes and Johnny Berry to use this local source Both machines belong to Keith Hellon Below are some Oscar Egg lugs used to build a 1958 Carlton Catalina The decal in the left hand image states Oscar Egg

  • Baines Flying Gate
    The works was very well laid out by the standards of the time A surface table was used to lay the frames out on They were rarely flashy frames on the outside though the lugs were hand cut and began to take on more intricate shapes Reg told me in a 1986 interview that they were far more concerned to get the inside right with correct mitreing and clean brazing Special bottom bracket shells and top seat tube lugs were cast by Vaughans in Birmingham to accommodate the vertical seat tube By 1938 there were three Flying Gate models The original VS 37 so called because of its 37 3 4in wheelbase the V38 and an International TT model This later model was created after Jack Fancourt won the 1937 Isle of Man TT mass start race on a Flying Gate frame The International TT model used the same frame design as the VS 37 but with a longer 39 1 2in wheelbase more suitable for road racing and derailleur gears This model was raced with many successes by Jack Fancourt and Jack Holmes at mass start races at Brooklands and Donnington in 1938 and 1939 and at the 1938 World Championships in Valkenburg Right Head lugs from an early post war Whirlwind there was a large variety of lugs used post war with no standard Frame production restarted after the war but with essentially the one model the Whirlwind left This was built with wheelbase and frame design to the rider s wishes It was not possible in the post war years to get the special bottom bracket shells and special seat tube lugs cast so when supplies ran out fillet brazing was used instead Frame production stopped around 1951 2 though Whitaker and Mapplebeck built a final 12

  • Bastide
    bracket was just 25cm from the ground instead of 30cm giving the machine a sleek and low appearance The top tube was parallel to the ground most racers at this period had top tubes sloping down to the head and most importantly the rear seatstays and chainstays were brazed into position instead of bolted as was common practice then Both the seat and chainstays were tapered round tubes with an indented right hand chainstay to allow for chainwheel clearance This made for a much stiffer and more efficient rear end to the frame And the frame was much smaller it was ridden with three inches of seat pillar showing rather than with the saddle stuffed right down onto the top tube A single front calliper brake was fitted which operated on the side of the wood rims and these early models featured BSA rear hubs with special hollow spindles and a skewer with quick thread that made for extremely quick and fast wheel replacement Fork blades were round Some Bastide features On the left above is the Bastide 2 plate fork crown used on most post WWI Bastides this was widely used by other makers and also frequently copied so much so that 2 plate fork crowns were often referred to as Bastide crowns Earlier Bastides used a solid cast crown Centre is seat lug and seatstay top from a 1920s Bastide earlier Bastides used a plainer cap sometimes with a forward facing seat bolt Right is bottom bracket shell from a pre WWI Bastide showing the liners necessary to fit the smaller diameter chainstays into the bottom bracket chainstay ports Later Bastides normally only used one liner But it is interesting to note the simple cutots on the seat tube port of the bottom bracket sheel a very advanced feature for 1913 The First World War came and importation of Bastides ceased for two or three years But as soon as the war ended they became available again This time there were a number of new English framebuilders Granby who had probably started in 1913 Macleans Saxon Grubb and later Selbach and F W Evans who quickly latched onto the new look racer encouraged by a number of cycling writers who preached the less is more philosophy of bike design continuously in the pages of Cycling and the CTC Gazette It was not long before some of the more forward thinking bigger manufacturers latched onto the new design New Hudson and James were probably the first in 1922 Some clung to their heavy old designs for a very long time among them BSA who still offered road racers to the old frame design as late as 1927 Most makers in France and Italy were independently building to a similar design but in some countries such as Holland and Germany bicycle design did not change from the old style for another 30 years and much later still in the Far East Bastide catalogues from the 1920s Bastide bicycles were shown
