1936 #3223

(Huw Evans)…

Judging by what I can discover it was made in late 1936 or very early 1937.  My father was a keen club cyclist in Cardiff and ordered the bike from Tubby Alexander’s shop on James Street.  Although I have seen the original receipt and catalogue I’m afraid that they now seem to have been lost, though I do have records of some of the time trials he took part in.  The bike was abused by all three of his sons as it was passed down, none of us realising what it was we were throwing around.  I had it renovated in the mid eighties and it had a last hoorah in Brittany at that time.  It’s been in storage ever since.
