Claudine Butler

On my recent trip to the UK I was able to take part in a V-CC run, in which there also was a beautiful original 1950s Claud Butler Avant Coureur Special Ladies – top notch.

This must certainly be bilaminated, even if the headlugs and the b/b aren´t.SCseatttransfThere were so many other bikes in the run, and there was such a lot of talking to do, that I couldn´t snap any more details, sorry.

    She is one terrific Claudine Butler! I am thinking about upgrading my Peugeot UO-18 mixte to a nicer all-531 frame, but would be terrified of ruining a great finish like that one in using my bike as an around-town “truck.” I need something of a lesser pedigree, perhaps, or something that already looks more “well-loved.”
