    Claud Butler Legend for sale

    I'm trying to thin out my stuff before a house move, and haven't ridden this bike in years (although it has had a little use on a turbo). I have no idea how much it is worth. I'm trying to find a home for it more than making money from it. I'm in Charfield, Glos (GL12). Collect only, or can...

    SOLD: Claud Butler 531 24" frame touring bike, 14 speed, £60 - Dewsbury, West Yorkshire

    This Claud Butler has come my way and I'd originally wanted it for a few parts. Apparently owned by an ex-pro rider it's in too good a condition simply to break. The frame is just over 24" so for tall or very tall, riders only. As someone of much more compact stature I've not even tested it...

    Identify the age of my Claud Butler

    Today I’ve been pottering about in my garage and decided to find and record the frame number of one of my older bikes. The two photos of underneath the BB show stamped numbers 22031 and underneath that are two letters C-R. From what I can gather from the internet it may have been produced in...

    Claud Butler Alto CX9 - what size is it?

    Hi, There is a CB Alto CX9 I'm thinking of purchasing. It's not been used much and is going for £300. The problem is the seller cannot confirm the size. I've pointed him to where the size sticker would be but he says there isn't one. Please take a look at the below link. Can anyone advise if it...

    1953 Claud Butler Jubilee I Think this a tad optimistic at the price, it is also missing the rear mech and gear lever, hence the 3 or single speed tag line. But it...

    1982 Claud Butler 531 Majestic - Project #10

    I picked this up last week, its in very nice condition, just neglected. The frame number dates it at 1982. The rear wheel is a Mavic open 4CD with a 6 speed cassette (the front Mavic open wheel is missing) and it's been updated with a Suntour front and rear mech and a Stronglight chainset, so at...

    1962 Claud Butler Super Courier For Sale - SOLD

    It’s with a very heart that I’ve listed my Claud Butler for sale, it’s probably the most detailed restoration I’ve carried out as I intended to keep it, so it wasn’t done to make a profit. The bike is superb, it rides beautifully and looks even more...

    How to “age a Claud Butler Enduro MTB”?

    Apologies if I’m not in the right area here but looking for some advice on the above bike which my son has bought. I can’t see a frame number under the bottom bracket but just above that near the bottom of the seat tube there is a sticker which says Special select CR-MO and a number HO33550...

    Claud Butler Front Brake Clearance

    Hi everyone, I have a Claud Butler that i bought some time ago that had been rebuilt. I finally got around to sorting it and the first item was to replace the tyres. Where i live there are a lot of flints and gravel in the road, and I am no light weight, so i bought some Schwalbe tyres that are...

    Claud Butler Olympic Super Coureur Project

    Here is my latest, A very tatty Claud Butler Olympic (gas pipe frame) All the nice stuff has been removed (Brooks and Campag) good news is that I love the colour scheme and it fits me so my plan is to turn it in to a simple single speed pub bike.

    Claud Butler Criterium - mid 90s

    Time for another project so with a bit of time on my hands I scanned eBay and picked this up last weekend. It's a Claud Butler Criterium and looking online at catalogues it places around 1994/5/6 vintage. It was listed as spares/repair and at a modest price after a bit of haggling my...

    Vintage Claud Butler identification

    So, im trying to ID this wee beastie. The frame number doesnt seem to tally with any published data that I can find. It is full Campag apart fromnthe weinneman 999 brakes and a cheapo mech. I think it might be a European from about 1957/8 but that is a gut feeling from trauling VCC catalogue

    Claud Butler 531 fixie - but rather different!

    Claud Butler 531 frame built as fixie - BUT it's a bit different as it's a Sturmey Archer 3-speed fixed (i.e. hub gear, with a bar-end changer) Frame size is about 58cm, professionally cold-set for modern 700c wheels. Powder coat orange finish, black bartape, Specialized BG saddle, SPD M520...

    Can you put a date on this Claud Butler please?

    Just picked this up. I think the derailleur is a gran sport campy? It’s tricky to read but I reckon this is worth restoring, lovely head badge too.

    Latest Addition (Claud Butler)

    Hi all, Just thought I'd share my latest purchase, I picked it up last week. Not sure of the model but the brake levers have a year of 1979 on them. Quite a large frame (24") but I like the colour, have put some new bar tape on. The chrome wheels aren't the best but are better than they were...

    Claud Butler Urraco mods

    Before I start ripping everything to bits, a quick question: this currently has Acera 3x7 speed transmission. I'm going to 8-speed and much lower gearing. I have the matching 8-speed brake/shifter. Is it possible that the Acera rear derailleur would work across the 8-speed cassette? Would save...

    Dating a Claud Butler

    Hi, I'm refurbishing an old Claud Butler sports bike and I'm trying to date it. It has 2 four digit numbers, one stamped on the bottom crank and one stamped on the fork stem. (Pictures attached I hope). The last 2 numbers are 75 and I was wondering if this could be the year? On the the frame...

    1950s lugless Claud Butler frame

    big thanks to @biggs682 for coming across this little gem. Interesting multi coated paint job, but underneath all that is a really well preserved frame. Need to get it stripped and re painted but will leave this on the back burner until I get time. Year based upon serial number and the fact...
