The Cyclone-de-Luxe, topped the range, identified by its Gothic spear-head lugs, with added elongated spear, along the top and down tube, at the head tube and, the top tube at the seat cluster.
It was available as a Road frame or a Track model, at a price of £15.15.0 in 1949.
Nervex, the lug maker, also had their name on their BB lugs with a long design serial number.
Make a note of where on the BB the number is and its orientation – for example, is it upright or inverted for reading when lifting the front wheel up with the rear wheel still on the ground?
