SP 7408

Robert Wace contacted me and said…

I have spoken to the collector that I bought this from who is fairly certain that Stan Pike built this frame. Apparently he worked alongside Wally Green to build frames for Rory O’Brien for a period of time. Also, looking at the wrap around seat stays and the frame number it points towards this being one of his. I’d be interested to hear what Stan’s son’s thoughts are on this.

I sent the pictures to Stan’s son, who replied…

Yes this is one of ours. An early track frame built in 1974.

Robert was obviously very pleased. He said…

That’s great news, thank you for confirming this. I recently spoke to the guy I bought this from (2 years ago) and he is meeting up with the original owner’s son this week so I’m hoping that we may get some further information, but nothing more at this stage I’m afraid.

I’ll update the page if I receive any further information.
