Frame1959 Leaders Cycles Leo Star. Reynolds straight gauge 531 with chromed Nervex lugs and fork ends and Nervex bottom bracket. The size is 24 inch.
Wheels 27" HP rims 40/32 DB spokes (both unknown make. I didn't have a Vernier gauge to measure the spokes but I think they are 15/17 gauge)
Campagnolo Cambio Corso (from what I can tell) hubs
ChainsetStronglight cranks with single TA chainring, Wedgelock bottom bracket
PedalsLyotard platform pedals with Brooks toe clips
GearsCampagnolo Gran Sport with Maillard freewheel
BrakesMafac 'Dural Forge' centre-pull
Stem/BarsGB Maes bars and Ambrosio Champion stem
SaddleBrooks Competition Standard B17 (stamped 59, hence the supposition that the frame is from that year)
Extra details I finally got to Devon a couple of weeks ago and saw the Leader Cycles Leo Star for the first time since I bought it. I cleaned it up and, greased the bearings and took the photos attached to this message. I only had time to go for a short ride of 15 miles or so but everything worked well. The frame is stiffer than I expected but was very surefooted even on rough
Thanks for reading
