Extra Details Bought from the original owner, Mr J Dickinson of York in 2009. It was restored by J F Wilson in the eighties. Note lug lining on top edge of lug, possibly a Yorkshire thing as Pennine Cycles did the same. Some in the V-CC have been rather unkind about the Langsett but its smooth and responsive ride served the original owner well over decades of racing.
Thanks for reading
