    Well, after sulking like a big kid after being done over on that 1930s sun on the car boot ive finally picked my lip up and had a punt on ebay.
    The rudge red mess.
    I pick it up on saturday.
    I'll post pictures when i get it.
    S/A rear hub,drop bars, and fluted rudge cranks. Im guessing beneath the ghastly red dulux its a rudge ulster sports.

    Chrome looks like it'll clean up nicely. Frames a tad small. Dont think its an ulster sport frame. Lugs are just plain jane and theres a boss on the chainstay for an enclosed chaincase. 4 speed sa hub and trigger. Haven't had chance to do much to it yet because the war office wanted to get the shopping done.!

    And unusual to see a small size frame

    Yeah biggs im looking forward to working on this one. Think it might be a bit small for me though. Got to source a set of mudguards and a seat post for it. Got a vintage wrights leather saddle to bung on it.
    Wheels are 26x11/4 and its still got dunlop sport sprint tyres on.
