Tim Whellock contacted me and said…
I am the proud owner of a Stan Pike. Stan made the frame in 1979 for me to ride short-circuit races in France. I still ride it on special days. The photo of Stan presenting a frame to my old mate Dave Smith was a bit of a shock, but brought back some good memories of the Somerset Road Club. Terry Manuel was also a good friend, he was a great photographer and must have many old photos from the 1970s.
Stan would often use your birthday as the frame number – mine is 231255. My name is also stamped in the bottom bracket.
My frame was built alongside a frame for a mate, George Saunders. They were both the same colour, citrus, very period!
