Extra DetailsI wanted to re-create the bike I raced on in the 50's. I couldn't get hold of a JRJ frame so when this W & M ('Ticker') Nidderdale frame came along I built it with all the appropriate parts I had collected. Picture of me on the JRJ in the 1956 Calder Valley Grand Prix at bottom of the page.
Thanks for reading
