    I have just been given this Rory O'Brien. The only number is on the Nervex lug bottom bracket
    69o3064o0222 2 635

    I assume this is the lug number?

    The picture is not great but it has gold letters on the downtube and a transfer with made in Romford.

    Can anyone tell me approx age?

    Also where I might get a pump measuring 19inches as it has brazed on lugs for one.

    From what I can see, I'd guess that it is a 60s frame; but you may pick up some info. from this thread - if you've not seen it already.

    Can't tell from the frame, but from some of the gear I'd agree with pubrunner. Looks in fantastic condition for it's age. Cottered cranks - blimey.
    By the way - that stem is downright dangerous pulled all the way out like that. It needs to be adjusted much, much lower.
