    Nice, looks like the later Mass Start, the Z prefix of this puts it late in the 60s... then again the whole Worksop Sun/Carlton numbering is one big head scratching exercise.

    Early Massed Start from the Worksop era would be around 62, and have slightly different lugs.

    Cheeky use of a much earlier Sun decal on the seat tube I see. Classy looking frame all the same.

    My earlier Massed Start 100, in the guise of a Snipe Prestige...

    That's a nice looking bike Spokesmann! The green on the head and seat tubes is gorgeous.

    +1 for that green - it goes with the chromework

    My Sunn Mass Start, converted to single speed and now being used by a university student to zip around Cardiff.
