  • Owen Bryars - early 50's
    bought frames and components from him He himself was a SWRC member In 1927 Owen became the manager of Holdsworths at 132 Lower Richmond Road where I believe that he was also a frame buider During this time Owen s sister married Sandy Holdsworth He stayed there until sometime around early 1939 when he had some kind of disagreement with Holdsworth so he left and opened his own shop at no 153 opposite I always assumed that he built his own frames but I cannot recollect that he ever had any staff so I now wonder how he could have found the time for building In 2006 I had some correspondence with Roger Armstrong on the subject He wrote I had a Bryars frame which I bought from Bill Gray Claud Butler s frame builder Bill knew everything about frames and their builders and had ridden the Bryars to work for over 40 years He stopped using it because the steering was tricky It had a 78 deg head and 24 top tube It would have been made just after the war and Bill said that Owen Bryars built it Roger later wrote having seen my frame It is a very nice frame which I agree must date to about 1947 8 and it looks every inch a Bryars In 1955 I cracked the hour barrier with a 59 47 see image below and Owen gave me a pair of beautiful Pirelli tubs for future events In 1956 I went much lower and he helped me lot giving me generous discounts and free tyres Late in 56 before joining the Royal Engineers I sold the Bryars frame with chainset and saddle to a work colleague for five pounds Graham Collins South West Road Club competing in 25 mile time trial on his Owen Bryars In August 1958 I was home on leave from Cyprus and went to see Owen at his shop He seemed ok to me but he died in October the same year His wife continued the business with his son as manager but Holdsworth bought the business within a year Holdsworth himself died in in 1961 The years went by and by coincidence in 1998 I came across the chap to whom I sold my Bryars He still had it having spent his entire career in the RAF and riding the bike in Germany Canada Hong Kong and many other postings including N Ireland He was no longer riding and returned it to me unrecognisable having been over painted in what he termed NATO green I scraped the paint off to reveal the original colour and enough of the down tube decal to reconstruct the script Roger found a waterslide headbadge in his collection Argos renovated the frame for me and I collected together my old bits and acquired others to put it into a fifties configuration as far as possible Frame Owen Bryars road frame no 108569 24 seat tube 23 top tube head angle 74
